    2       tb           Fish sauce
      1/4   c            Thinly sliced fresh krachai
                         -or:
    2       tb           Loosely packed dried *
    2                    Fresh kaffir lime leaves or:
    4                    Dried **
      1/2   c            Chopped fresh basil
 
   * soaked in warm water for 15 minutes, drained and sliced (optional) **
   soaked in warm water for 20 minutes and drained, or I tsp. grated lime zest
   
   Unlike most other Thai curries, jungle Curry is made without coconut milk
   because coconuts don't grow in the jungles of northern Thailand. The curry
   paste is hot and full of flavor. Kaffir lime leaves give this curry its
   distinctive and enticing flavor, but if they are not available, you can
   substitute grated lime Zest.
   
   Cut pork in half lengthwise and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Set aside.
   In a large, nonstick skillet or wok, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add
   garlic and stir-fry for 2 minutes, or until browned. Add curry paste and
   cook for 30 seconds, pressing it against the sides and bottom of the
   skillet or wok.  Add pork and stir-fry for 2 to 3 minutes, or until light
   brown.  Add stock and bring to a boil. Add eggplant, beans, fish sauce,
   krachai (if using) and lime leaves or zest, and cook for 5 to 6 minutes, or
   until the vegetables are tender. If using lime leaves, discard them. Remove
   from heat and stir in basil. Serve with sticky rice.
   
   Serves 4 as a main dish or 6 in combination with other dishes.
