Vegetable Panang Curry

I love how creamy and slightly sweet Panang Curry is. It’s pretty much my go to when ordering Curry at Thai restaurants. I often make Red Curry at home but never tried my hand at Panang until now. It still uses store bought Red Curry paste that’s so easy to adjust to get that yummy Panang flavor.
