Tasty Cambodian Chicken and bamboo curry. I question the amount of sugar-seems way off to me. I'd add 2 teaspoons, taste, and adjust to your taste.

  Green beans 1⁄2 Pound, cut
  Carrots 5 Large, sliced
  Idaho potatoes 5 Large, cut

Cambodian curries are much like Thai curries-same ingredients, but this technique of mixing the shrimp paste and curry paste with the coconut milk is different. Normally you would fry thecurry paste in thick part of coconut milk until it is very fragrant, and you would toast the shrimp paste to develop flavour i.e. looses the strong smell by doing this.
