Curry dishes from Thailand have a deliciously different flavor because of the use of the local ingredients, like kafir lime leaves and lemongrass.
Coconut milk is frequently used in Thai curries, though not always.
Depending on the type of chilies used, the strength of a red curry can range from mild to fiery hot.
The secret to making a successful curry is to allow it to simmer for a long period, bringing out the full flavor of the spices.
