    If you haven’t tried cooking a Thai dish, you probably think it’s more complicated than it is.  Recently, I was asked to prepare an Asian dish for a large group of people.  I decided to make red curry, because it’s quick, easy, and versatile.  Curry does not mean “hot”.  The level of spice can be adjusted simply by increasing or reducing the amount of curry paste that you use in a recipe.  Depending on the type of curry, various herbs and vegetables (sometimes fruit too) can be added.  You can opt to serve it with meat or without.  Coconut milk is used, making red curry dairy free.  Red curry paste is gluten free.  This makes the dish versatile and able to accommodate those with dietary restrictions.

    Dishes of highly spiced meat are thought to have originated in pre-historic times among the inhabitants of the Indus Valley Civilization.   Archaeological evidence dating to 2600 BCE from Mohenjo-daro suggests the use of mortar and pestle to pound spices including mustard, fennel, cumin, and tamarind pods with which they flavored food. Such curry style dishes are also recorded during the Vedic Period of Indian history, roughly 1700 to 500 BCE.

    Traditionally, curry spices are used both whole and ground; cooked or raw; and they may be added at different times during the cooking process to produce different results.  In the original traditional cuisines, the selection of spices is a matter of national or regional cultural tradition, religious practice, and, to some extent, family preference. Curry dishes are known by specific names that refer to their ingredients, spicing, and cooking methods.
