Red curry coconut milk recipe
This red curry chicken is as easy as cooking gets. After making the miraculously simple 15-minute Coconut Curry Noodle Soup recipe a few months ago, I realized what a magical ingredient canned curry paste is. It adds a ton of flavor with minimal effort––emphasis on minimal. This recipe has fewer than 10 ingredients, takes less than a half hour to make, and it’s a one pot meal worthy of any weeknight.
If you’re wondering where to find red curry paste, head to any Asian grocery store, and look for a little red can labeled…you guessed it––red curry paste. No confusing Chinese characters or misspelled Chinglish words here! We used a brand called “Maesri, ” which is the one we usually buy.
Turn up the heat to high and add the chicken.
Cook until the chicken is browned, and pour in the coconut milk. Bring to a simmer and season with salt to taste. Simmer for 5 minutes and stir in the choy sum.
Cook until the choy sum is wilted and stir in the cilantro.

Is there a recipe for Red Curry Noodles without using coconut milk? | Yahoo Answers
You could try substituting the coconut milk for natural yogurt or creme fraiche which will give it a less sweet taste and is what I do when I make curry sometimes.
Hope this helps
