Color Coded Curry
Curries are an important part of Thai cuisine and refer to both the dish as well as the curry paste used to make the dish. There are three main types of Thai curries—green, red, and yellow—which are categorized by the color of the curry paste. The color of the chilies and other ingredients gives each curry its distinct hue.
Green curry was made with green chillies, while red curry was made with with several red chilies for a fiery hot dish and yellow curry was made with yellow chilies. In Thailand, these chilies have slightly different taste characteristics in addition to their color.
Green curry originates from Central Thailand. It is a Thai curry made of coconut milk and fresh green chillies, which gives it a super creamy texture and its mild green colour.
Over time, however, other ingredients have been added to the curry pastes to enhance each recipe, making them more distinct from one another. Although all three colors may be spicy-hot to some people, normally green is the mildest and red the hottest with yellow falling somewhere in between.

Other Types of Thai Curry
There are numerous other types of Thai curry in addition to red, yellow, and green. These include Massaman curry, Penang curry, and sour curry.
Massaman curry is one of the more unique Thai curries thanks to Persian influence. It originated in the south of Thailand near the border of Malaysia and is a thick sauce with a mild, slightly sweet flavor. Massaman curry dishes distinguish themselves by the inclusion of several whole spices and peanuts, otherwise uncommon in a Thai curry.
Thai Penang red curry is richer and sweeter yet drier than the other curries. It is named for the island off the west coast of Malaysia and is served sometimes topped with coconut cream. The paste is made of dried or fresh red chilies and is usually prepared to be extremely spicy.
