This dish is very versatile, you can really add whatever veggies or meat you like. I think chicken or tofu would be great in it, although you may want to omit the fish sauce and use salt intead. Also it can be made with light coconut milk for a diet friedly meal.

A little warning for those who don't like spicy food, you should start out with a teaspoon of curry paste and taste it as you go to ajust the heat. I would also suggest that you check your local Whole Foods store to find a good quality curry paste.

Everyone loved it, even my 18 month old ate it and she is a picky girl.
