This dish is so flavorful and delicious. You can make it healthier by substituting the ground pork for ground turkey. If you like coconut milk based sauces you will adore this quick stovetop recipe. I learned this recipe when I was in culinary school when we were preparing different ethnic cuisines. It was a favorite of the whole class.
