Thai Red Curryis possibly the most well known of all
curries in Thailand. It is available everywhere, and is listed upon every
restaurant menu. Popular with both Thais and foreign visitors and noted for its
fiery yet rich taste.
Thai Red Curry can be made using
chicken, beef, duck or pork, and is seldom made from any form of seafood except
shrimp or prawns. The overall flavour of the Thai Red Curry is dictated by the
quality of the curry paste used during preparation. Within Thailand, curry
paste is made and sold as a raw ingredient in its own right, and is usually
sold at local markets. A good curry paste vendor will always be successful, as
people rely upon quality curry paste to produce the very best tasting curries.
