Pork and Pineapple Red Curry

The secret to a good curry is to let the flavours party in the pan before you add the liquid, more importantly do not add more curry paste after you have added the liquid.Curry paste has to be cooked down, you know how much heat your taste buds like so adjust accordingly at this stage.Remember the sauce is the star so as your cooking you might feel it needs more lime, sugar or fish sauce etc so taste, taste, taste!!
