I always have weekly urges for curry and often make my own. With just having an awesome Thai dinner at a family friend’s house, I really wanted Thai green curry. There’s a huge variety of Thai curries and most are identified by the color of the actual dish. To no surprise then that green curries are actually green and results from the green curry paste that’s used. The green curry paste gets its signature color from grinding ingredients in a mortar like green chili, shallots, garlic, galangal, kaffir lime, coriander, cumin seeds, and many other secret ingredients. And because of the green chili, green curries tend to be just as hot, if not hotter, than red and yellow curries. But regardless of how spicy, green curries will always have a signature sweetness to it that other curries don’t. And it’s this refreshing sweetness that I yearn for, a distinct sweetness that’s a mix of palm sugar and kaffir lime.
