Thai Dishes Explained: The Differences Between Thai & Japanese Curry, Kahului, Hawaii

When many people think of curries, they may picture Indian-style rice dishes made from strong spices and turmeric. Thailand and Japan both have their own varieties of curry as well, each prepared using a unique combination of spices and other ingredients. The Asian cuisine experts at Thailand Cuisine, a restaurant serving delicious Thai dishes in Kihei, HI, explain how Thai curry is different than Japanese curry.

Thai dishThai curry is usually a rich, soupy dish made from coconut milk, curry paste, and chicken or beef, although it can be prepared as a vegetarian food. Curry is a popular Thai dish eaten in many homes on a daily basis and contains locally grown, healthy ingredients. Thai curry typically contains ingredients including hot chili peppers, garlic, coriander and cumin seeds, and shrimp paste. Spicy food lovers may want to try a green curry, while fans of milder dishes may want to try yellow curry, which has a sweeter flavor.

Japanese curry is a popular food served in Japan, eaten so often that it's considered a national dish. It's a versatile blend of foods including onions, carrots, and potatoes, and it can include meats such as chicken, pork, or beef. Japanese curry is frequently served over rice but it is also paired with noodles or baked into curry bread. With a great variety of curry dishes and recipes available, Japanese curry is constantly evolving to include unique combinations of ingredients and different preparation methods.
