Thai Red Curry Rice - Simple one lunch box recipe

My kids love the Thai / Chinese recipes. This is one of the very easy and tasty rice esp if you love spicy food. I have used store brought Red curry paste. Usually I make Red Thai Curry. While making I use coconut bought from shop. However this time I made it with homemade coconut milk. So was I left with some curry paste. I was wondering what to do with it. My kids were suggesting making rice with it. Without second thought I made it and it tasted so nice.
