DISH, FLAVORTOWN! , BASIL, SESAME OIL, MAKES THIS DISH FOR LOVERS !!!
This dish was added to the menu at Milestones in Ontario, Canada by cupid’s Chef Jason Rosso. They added a drizzle of peanut sauce. All you need is add 2-3 tablespoons unsalted unsweetened creamy peanut butter to 1/3 of the coconut milk mixture and pour on top. Hot jalapino peppers sliced in rings is another addition that gives heat, or, 1 hotter Serrano chili, seeded and sliced. SUBSTITUTION: The recipe calls for chili flakes. They are not common in all regions. I used red pepper flakes. You can use chili powder if you wish, or a combination of both.
