Thai Red Curry

This dish packs a punch, tantalizes the tastebuds, and it’s spicier than the other curries. It’s the red chillies in the paste that lend their colour to this curry and gives it a deeper flavour. The fiery heat from the chillies is toned down by the coconut milk or using milder chillies.
