Thai style vegetables in Red curry and Saffron Rice

In contrast to week days, Weekends I cook some elaborate meals. This weekend I made this Thai style vegetables in Red curry and Saffron Rice.

For the curryI made everything from scratch right from coconut milk.

I used the recipe for the Red Curry paste from Sanjeevkapoor. This spicy Thai style vegetables in Red Curry we had with Saffron Rice. I used lime leaves from our garden to flavour the curry .

I followed this recipe for Saffron Rice, Except that I made it in the Rice cooker and with our regular long grained white rice-no jasmine rice.
