Savita's Notes:I suggest you can just double the ingredients and make double quantity of curry. Just before adding Tofu and Red Bell Pepper, take out half of curry, bring to room temperature and store in refrigerator. curry will stay good for 3-4 days. On busy week nights, just boil 1 packet of rice noodles, saute with brown peanut curry and add grilled chicken. And you made weeknight Thai food night at home. Sounds so budget friendly.
