Red curry is another popular dish in Thai cuisine for curry lovers. It is rich and full of flavour, you can make it as mild or as hot as you like. The paste is made from dry red chillis with lots of herbs and spices (garlic, shallots, cumin, white pepper corns, lemongrass, galangal, kaffir lime, coriander roots, coriander seeds and salt) ground together. This paste is used in many Thai dishes, from curries, soups to stir fries. You do not have to make the paste yourself  as these days it is often found in many supermarkets, ‘Mae Ploy’ is a one of the popular makes.
For this recipe I went with vegetables due to requests for more vegetarian dishes. It tastes great with or without meat, it is still wholesome and satisfying. You can use any vegetables you like, I find pumpkins also go well in this dish so give it a try.
