Classic Thai Curries
Doytao Thai Restaurant | Green Curry
Thai green curry or “Kaeng Kiew Wan” in Thai, literate translation “Thai Sweet Green Soup.” But don’t be deceived by the name as the spiciness of the dish can vary. The “sweet” refers to the light green color of the curry due to the blend of coconut milk and fresh green chili. Thai green curry can be eaten with rice, Khanom Chin (rice noodle), or roti (Thai flatbread).
Let's have a look at the main ingredients used for the yellow, green and red curry and then come back to wich one is spicier.
- Thai Yellow Curry's main ingredients are turmeric, fresh herbs, and dried spices, which make it taste milder.
- Thai Red Curry's main ingredients are ripe red chilis paste and coconut milk, which could be spicier than the yellow curry.
- Thai Green Curry's main ingredients are fresh green chilies, coriander, herbs, and coconut milk. In principle, Thai green curry should be spicers as young green chilies are spicier than red.
But please don't be fooled by the color as the hottest Thai dishes can have a yellow color. So if you are concerned, please ask first before ordering.
The simple answer is, it can be. According to Live Strong one serving of Thai green curry contains the following nutritional value:
- 395 calories
- 27 grams of fat
- 22 grams of carbohydrates
- 28 grams of protein
But this can vary depending on the amount of coconut milk and palm sugar used. It can be as low as 215 calories just with the vegetable and up to 500 calories if the chef likes it more creamy and sweet. Overall with all the Thai herbs, Thai eggplant and spices, makes the Thai green curry is a delicious, healthy choice.
At Doytao, we use peas, but if you ever ordered Thai Green Curry in Thailand, you might have noticed that they are something else than peas. Those are pea aubergine, which has a high nutrition value but is bitter and is an acquired taste.
Green chilies, coconut milk, Thai eggplant, garlic, lemongrass, galangal, cilantro roots, can include pea aubergine and even fruits.
