This is a nutritious and delicious meal. Don’t be nervous about making the crêpes—they’re actually very easy, and a great way to impress guests. The hearty taste of the buckwheat is a nice compliment to the sweet and slightly spicy curry. (Red curry isn’t very spicy, so if you like more heat, you can use green curry paste.)
