Based on recipe by Rachael Ray. Serves 4.
In a large, deep skillet, heat the oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking, about 2 minutes. Stir in the curry paste (adding more if a spicier sauce is desired) and cook until shiny and fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in the broth, coconut milk and 1/4 cup water and bring to a gentle boil, stirring constantly, over medium-high heat; cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Whisk in the peanut butter, sugar and soy sauce to form a smooth, creamy sauce, about 1 minute. Use the peanuts for garnish.
Even the clearest and most perfect circumstantial evidence is likely to be at
fault, after all, and therefore ought to be received with great caution. Take
the case of any pencil, sharpened by any woman; if you have witnesses, you will
find she did it with a knife; but if you take simply the aspect of the pencil,
you will say that she did it with her teeth.
