A few tips
All of the ingredients for this ultra-exotic fondue are easy to find in an Asian grocery store, but if you don’t have them, the only ingredient you really need is red curry paste. If necessary, replace the package of tamarind soup with ½ cup of lime juice, and serve the fondue with the seafood and vegetables you want!
The purple “ube” yam tastes very similarly to regular orange sweet potato. You can exchange one for the other!
Canned quail eggs can be replaced with hard boiled chicken eggs, peeled and sliced in half.
