About Thai Red Curry

Thai Red curry has more or less remained the same over time, with traditional Thai chefs adding up to 20 red chilies to give it that red colour and make it spicy. However, some modern chefs prefer to reduce the number of chilies in exchange for chili powder and sometimes tomato sauce, which have the added benefit of enhancing the red colour as well as imparting a deeper flavour.
