I am no expert on Thai cuisine, although I am making every attempt to learn about it, and I eat in Thai restaurants every chance I get. I have a friend who insists the Thai restaurants she eats in include avocado in Massaman Curry. She is in NC although she travels a great deal within the US. This just doesn't seem right to me. I don't ever remember finding avocado in that dish when I've ordered it, and I often do choose it in restaurants. I usually find peanuts, potatoes, assorted vegetables in it. Does anyone know if this is a regional NC thing, or might there be some other vegetable in there that she could be mistaking for avocado or am I totally wrong and avocado is an ingredient typically found in this great dish?
