Do you know the Difference Between Red, Yellow, and Green Thai Curries?
“Traditionally, all Thai curries were made with the same ingredients except for one thing: the chilies. Red curry was made with several red chilies for a fiery hot dish, while green curry was made with green chilies, and yellow curry was made with yellow chilies. In Thailand, these chilies have slightly different taste characteristics in addition to their color. Over time, however, other ingredients have been added to the curry pastes to enhance each recipe, making them more distinct from one another. Although all three colors may be spicy-hot depending on the chef, normally green is the mildest and red the hottest with yellow falling somewhere in between.”
It’s finally here! If you read our previous post, you probably know the differences between these three types of curries. 🌶🥢🥘🥕🍜 #curries
Curries can be made with different types of vegetables, choice of meat and even level of spiciness.🔥
However, we should also know that each person has different tastes and preferences. 🙏👣 #diversity
At Wonderlust, we tried to be a little more flexible as you can choose what meat you want as well how spicy you want it. All you need to do is ask our servers to adapt it for you. Our curries goes with udon noodles which have very smooth texture and goes perfectly well with rich coconut milk. Hope you enjoy it! 🥰 ~ Wonderlust Team
Our first golden (yellow) curry is like a walk in coconut paradise. 🥥 The coconut milk is very evident here as the yellow curry flavor is milder compared to the two latter versions. Other ingredients include coriander, turmeric, ginger, garlic, peppers and lemongrass. Here is the combination of yellow curry with chicken and yellow bell peppers and sometimes even a mango. 😯 We recommend this version for beginners who have never tried curry before.
Red is a color of passion, confidence and power. That’s how our red curries will make you feel like. Here is the combination of red curry with tender beef and red bell peppers. Slightly stronger than our yellow (golden) curry, as the taste of coconut milk is reduced by chilli powder. However after eating this dish, we can ensure you that we can boost your energy level as red chilli can reduce your stress level as well improve you immunity.
Last but not least is our green curry. If you can handle the heat, then go for a Thai green curry. With incredibly aromatic ingredients like fresh green chillies, coriander and lime, green curry is usually the spiciest of the three curries we’ve listed in our previous posts before. The coconut milk can down the spice a bit, but we have to warn you beforehand. We think that the best combination for green curry is with crunchy shrimps.
