Sounds wonderful! However, where do you get kefir lime leaves?

The lime leaves you can get from most asian markets and you can seal them and freeze. They keep a long time and good for many things.
This is an okay recipe, no disrespect intended but it's missing a few core ingredients to make a good thai curry dish. For one thing without the fish sauce it's definitely doesn't have that authentic thai taste. :)

No disrespect taken. I have made it with and without the fish sauce. I prefer it without. A Chinese gentleman I was working with taught me this recipe and it originally had potatoes in it and was cooked with the basil in it. Over the years I have omitted the potatoes and sometimes use the basil stems in the sauce and remove before serving. I also chiffonade basil leaves and sprinkle over just before serving.
