Some years ago my friend's son took us to dinner in Wrigglyville (Chicago) to a place called Joy Noodles. I had the best red curry there I have ever had. It took awhile but I duplicated the recipe. I got a start by finding maybe 12 recipes online and finding the common ingredients. This is most excellent, and my own recipe.
