We discovered tonight that red curry is milder than green curry. The other night we had red curry shrimp and it was delicious. Tonight we had green curry chicken, and I used the same amount of green curry paste as I did of red (the recipe was the same) and boy, was it HOT! A little too hot for us… next time I’ll use maybe a little more than half that amount.
While researching curry heat, I found this really cool kitchen gadget – I want it!!
When making coconut milk, I wonder if it would be better to use the coconut water or just plain water? I suppose both would be needed to get enough milk for a recipe. I would definitely like to try making our own coconut milk, that would be very cool. I’ve recently discovered that fresh coconut is one of my favorite foods – probably in the top 10. Mmm!
