แกงเผ็ด; ) (lit: spicy curry
) is a popular Thai
dish based on coconut milk heated with red curry
paste and fish sauce
. Red curry dishes may include ingredients such as kaffir lime
leaves or peel, Thai eggplant
shoots, thai basil
, and some sort of meat such as chicken
, or more often duck
or Meat analogues
can be substituted as a vegetarian option. This dish normally has a thick, soup-like consistency and is served in a bowl with a side of rice
. As red curry paste sometimes contains shrimp paste
, it may not be suitable for vegetarians. Although Panang
and Gaeng Ped
are red colored curries, they aren't called "Red Curry".
Red curry paste itself is the core ingredient of a number of other non-related dishes such as Satay and Tod Mun.
Its name, "red curry", is consistent with Thai "curry" dishes, which are frequently identified solely by their color, other common types being yellow curry and green curry. However, the yellow curry is also called gaeng curry (by various spellings), which actually means curry. The other kinds of gaeng, such as red, are also called curry in English, though in Thai it is yellow gaeng that is called curry (Ga-ree).
