I love red curry and Thai curries in general—be it green curry, Panang curry, massaman curry, yellow curry, or red curry. There are many red curry recipes, each with slightly different ingredients, for example: potatoes, bamboo shoots, winter squash, pumpkins, Thai egg plants, etc. Chicken is commonly used for red curry, but there are pork red curry and beef red curry. Regardless of the meat of choice and side ingredients used, red curry is invaribly satisfying.
Thai red curry is traditionally richer compared to Malaysian chicken curry and Indian curries. Infused with lots of coconut milk, spice paste, and flavored with palm sugar plus fish sauce–two secret ingredients of Thai recipes—red curry goes extremely well with soft and aromatic jasmine rice. It is no wonder Thai curries are fast gaining popularity across the world.
For my red curry recipe, I used scallops, chicken, and paired them with some long beans and carrots. I also added some finely cut kaffir lime leaves that inevitably made the red curry extra aromatic and exotic in flavor. My red curry tasted utterly delicious, so much as that I finished the whole serving of steamed rice that was used for my photo prop. Talking about my red curry food photography, you ought to check them all out. I really like the red curry photo set–the vibrant colors and the tempting looking red curry would make you hungry.
