Sounds a nice tasty curry - I would have to calm the heat down a bit for my taste, though!!  I don't think I could survive 1 tbs of hot curry paste :o

I made it with Tandoori paste to bring it to work for lunch today and it was very nice...had a bite but not too hot.  My mother who doesn't eat hot food has asked me to bring some in for her tomorrow for her lunch.  For some reason my red and green curry pastes have vanished from the fridge and I only had a choice of jungle curry, laksa or tandoori :(.  I NEED to go shopping!
