Curry Dishes

Have you ever wondered the differences between the curries that I teach in my Curry Class? The class I teach includes three different types of curries. Thai curries are more soup like than your typical Indian curry, and can be used in a variety of ways.

Gang Kiaw Won is a green curry. Green curry is often considered to be the most popular of Thai curries, and is the only curry that uses fresh green chiles. Each of the other curries only use dried chiles in their creation. Green curry can be extremely hot in flavor and can add a lot of kick to a dish!

Red curry, or in my class Gang Dang, is considered to be the most versatile of the curries, and is created with dried red chiles. Due to its versatility, red curry is able to be used in a wide variety of dishes.

Gang Panang or panang curry, which is very close to yellow curry, is a Thai version of Indian curry. This is a mild curry, but can also be very rich depending on the spicy herb blend, and pastes that are used in its preparation process.

If you are interested, I can also teach you how to grind your own curry powders during class, so don’t delay and sign up for my Curry Class today!
