Are you bored eating creamy? Here is something spicy. This is totally an Asian recipe.

When I don’t have meat in my refrigerator, I always try to make something vegetarian, but which tastes like meat at the same time. Spicy Mushroom Dry Curry is my first choice on this kind of day.

In your country if it is unable to find out divided coconut milk varieties as first flesh and second flesh, you can use canned coconut milk for both times.
