Red curry or green curry? What is your favourite? What is the difference ? Is one hotter than the other? Fresh or readymade curry paste?
My favourite is….. I love them all. It’s like asking you to choose your favorite children, it is not possible.
The difference in the red and green curry is the chilli used to make the paste. Green are made mainly from fresh green chilli and red is made with dried red chilli.
Which is hotter? Each of us has a different tolerance to chilli. The heat you get from fresh chilli and dried chilli are very different. I can take fresh chilli heat much better than dried chilli heat. Therefore I find the red curry to be hotter.
Fresh or readymade curry paste? As I have mentioned before I am a readymade curry paste fan. The reason being that I do not have time to be making it from fresh even if I know how. I used to watch my mum make them for her restaurant, it is not an easy task. Also if I was to make it from fresh I would want to make sure I have all the authentic ingredients like Kaffir lime rind, galangal and Krachi which are not easy to find in most supermarkets. I do have a favourite brand of curry paste and I will only use that brand.
