Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the originals.
  • tip 2
    Like it spicy? Add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon additional curry paste.
  • tip 3
    Coconut milk and curry paste are both available at many supermarkets in the Asian foods aisle, or look for these specialty products at Asian markets.
  • tip 4
    If you don't have cornstarch, you can use 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour instead. Increase the amount of cold water to 1/4 cup.
