5 of the Best Curries Found in Thai Cuisine, Kahului, Hawaii

Thai cuisine is famous around the world for its bold flavors—and especially for its curries. These spicy sauces lend a distinctive taste to any dish and come in a variety of heat levels. Below, the staff at Thailand Cuisine 2 in Kahului, HI, notes some popular options they have on their menu. 

Top 5 Curries Used in Thai Cuisine

Sweet Green Curry

Despite its name, sweet green curry is one of the hottest types of curry used in Thai cuisine. However, the use of coconut milk and lime juice also lends it a sweeter flavor. Green chili, Thai basil, garlic, and blue ginger combine alongside these ingredients to create a distinctive flavor.

Panang Curry

Though this curry originated in Laos, it has since become a popular element in Thai cuisine. This curry is much milder than other varieties and is made using dried chili, coconut milk, lemongrass, shallots, and other herbs and spices. Some versions also use peanuts.

Massaman Curry

Massaman curry can also trace its roots from outside Thailand—in this case, to India. While it uses standard ingredients such as red chili, shallots, blue ginger, and several other spices, the use of potatoes and peanuts helps make this curry unique.

Red Curry

Thai cuisineThose who can take the heat will love red curry, which incorporates a large number of red chilies to create a fiery sauce with a distinctive color. Many different types of meat and vegetables can be cooked in the sauce. 

Yellow Curry

Yellow curry uses coconut cream, turmeric, and yellow mustard seeds, resulting in a milder flavor and yellow coloration. It is often used in mixed vegetable dishes.
