Green Curry

Thai curry.

Spicy yet mellow flavored soup with oriental vegetables attracts people for its flavorful taste. Even though they are called “curry,” they don’t have similar flavor like Indian cuisine which uses cumin spice. When I first tried Thai curry, I enjoyed the mellow flavor coming from coconut milk in curry in the first bite, and gradually started to feel the heat from the spice. When I go to an Asian grocery store, I always spend several minutes in front of the curry paste aisle because I wonder which one is the best: red curry green curry, yellow curry, or penang curry. When I was in Seattle, I got red curry so this time I chose green because some say green curry is the hottest.
