This recipe was passed down from my mother in law...it took a long time before I added the "secret" ingredients (nam pla) fish sauce....but that is what REALLY makes this dish yummy!

1 Tsp. olive oil
2 cans coconut milk (regular or light)
2 Tbsp. red or green curry (both spicy add more for more spice)
4 breasts chicken cut in small pieces (i like meatless...my mom uses dark meat)
1 chinese egg plant cut in small wedges (or zuccini if it is not in season)
1 can baby corn
1 can sliced bamboo shoots
1 lime (juice only)
6 lime leafs (you can only find these in gourmet or asian markets)
3 Tbsp. sugar
1/3 cup torn fresh basil
1/4 cup fish sauce (always use a good brand)

Put olive oil in large pan on med/high, add curry and stir for 1 min. until fragrent. Add 1 1/2 can of coconut milk and combine curry & milk...add chicken and stir until cooked. Add veggies and lime leaf, sugar and lime juice. Turn down heat a bit and simmer until veggies are tender. Add in bamboo shoots and baby corn, cook for 1 min. Add basil and 1/4 cup of fish sauce. Add the remaining 1/2 can of coconut milk for that creamy taste.
~serve immediately on top of jasmine rice...squeeze more lime on top if you like.
