This Thai Red Curry brings the delightful flavors of South East Asian cooking into your own home.
What's the difference between the different Thai curries? A red curry paste is made with fresh or dried red chilies while a green curry paste is made with fresh green chilies - and yes, this makes a difference! Based on the other slight differences between the ingredients of these two curries, green tends slightly on the sweet side, while red leans more on the savory side.
Yes, I know I just said that a red curry uses red chilies, so what's the deal with the green chilies garnishing my bowl? Well.. it's simple. I just love the contrast in color! You'll also find red chilies garnishing my green curry for the same reason!
