Tasted it the first time on spinach ravioli instead of a basic tomato sauce, and I have been addicted ever since.

I followed the recipe exactly and it came out too thick salty and without enough kick but I think it gave me a good base. I fixed it by adding a can of coconut milk 1/3 of a cup of sugar and half a bottle of sriracha chili sauce. That made it just what I was looking for:) Read More

I wish I had read the other reviews they were spot on. Way too thick with no taste. Added a whole can of lite thai coconut milk and 2 T red curry paste. Then put into blender helped the taste a lot. Read More

When I mixed the ingredients and put it in the microwave it was a paste not a sauce- basically like dark peanut butter. I had to thin it out before I could use it. I will not be using this recipe again. I tried to eat it (and I hate wasting food) but it is just not appetizing. Read More

As other reviewers have stated this was very thick but a good base for adjustments. I use a Thai peanut sauce on a cold soba noodle salad all the time. I had to thin this one out before using it for that application. I saw a review that recommended using coconut milk. I will need to try that next time. Read More
