Evil Jungle Prince is a Thai entree that originated at a restaurant in California. It has a sort of coconut basil sauce.

It is similar to Masamun curry, being based on coconut milk, but spicier. In theory it's only vegetarian, but I have seen variants that use chicken.

Some online digging found many copies of the recipe I present below (I haven't tried this yet but plan to the first opportunity I get):


Thinly cut chicken into 2-inch strips. If using vegetables, cut into thin strips. Grind together red chili peppers, lemon grass, and kafir lime leaves in a food processor or pound in a mortar. Heat oil to medium-high and saute pepper mixture for 3 minutes. Stir in coconut milk and cook for 2 minutes. Add chicken (or vegetables) and cook for 5 minutes or until cooked. Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in fish sauce (if using), salt, and basil. Serve on a bed of chopped cabbage.

Serves 3-4.
