“This is an authentic 5 star restaurant-quality Thai/Indian style dish that can be created at home. This dish is an amazing Thai dish, and one I could quite possible eat every day, it is THAT good! If you don't have any red curry paste or coconut milk on hand, I strongly suggest to purchase some just to make this recipe, you can find Thai red curry paste and coconut milk in any Asian, Indian or Latin American market or large food chains, I purchase mine at my local Super Valu store chain. Bypass this recipe if you don't have a palat for Thai or Asian-style dishes. If you prefer your apricots to stay a firmer texture, then add in with the chutney and cook about 1 minute.”
