Green, Yellow, and Red - the three colors of the most popular Thai curries. There are many versions of red curry - two others are included on this list (see "Jungle Curry" and "Penang Curry" below). What makes Thai red curry red? Chili, of course! So if you like spicy, you'll love this red curry chicken recipe. Like yellow and green Thai curries, red curry easy to make, fragrant, and healthy too. As a bonus, this red curry is very easy to make. ENJOY!

This Northern Thai recipe for chicken curry features warm spices in a fragrant homemade curry sauce that's put together right in the pan/wok (without having to make a separate curry paste). Chicken is combined with potatoes, and vegetables can also be added if you desire (eggplant is delicious). If you enjoy both Thai and Indian curries, you'll love this warm and flavorful dish.

6. Easy Thai Chicken Coconut Curry (with Sweet Potato/Yam)

Beautiful Thai Chicken Coconut Curry with Sweet Potato
This sumptuous Coconut Curry Chicken recipe is cooked entirely from scratch, yet is very easy to make. To save time, here I've dispense making a separate paste - all the ingredients are simply sed into the curry pot as you have them ready. It comes paired with sweet potato or yam for just a touch of sweetness in an otherwise savory Thai curry that's just perfect for fall.

7. Penang Chicken Curry

Penang Curry can be made with either beef or chicken, according to your preference. Named after a state in northern Malaysia, this special curry dish carries with it flavors and aromas of distant places (you'll find references to Malaysia as well as India and Burma). With its homemade combination of spices and fresh herbs, my Penang curry is super healthy, and the red vegetables such as tomatoes and red bell (or sweet) peppers add extra vitamins, flavor, and texture to this wonderful dish.

8. Massaman Chicken Curry

Massaman Curry is a popular dish from the south of Thailand. Its flavors are indicative of Malaysian curries, with warm spices like cinnamon, cardamom, and cloves. Added to this mixture are lemongrass, red chili, plus cumin and coriander seeds cooked together in coconut milk for a fragrant, rich-tasting curry. Serve this fantastic chicken curry with coconut rice plus a cold lager for a complete Thai treat (recipe included)!

9. Thai Jungle Curry

If you like chicken curry, try my Thai Jungle Curry, which is based on a famous dish from Chiang Mai. Spicy and layered with flavor, this curry is a splendid variation of red curry, but with the addition of a few key ingredients. While Jungle Curry is usually made with wild meats (which most Westerners would have trouble obtaining and stomaching), here I've created my own version using chicken. I've also replaced the original broth with a little coconut milk, which I find adds more thickness and flavor to the sauce. Note that Jungle Curry can also be made with pork or other red or wild meats of your choice. ENJOY!

10. Indonesian-style Rendang Chicken Curry

Indonesian-style Rendang Chicken Curry
D.Schmidt
Indonesian cuisine has always been influential in Thai cooking. One of the more popular Indonesians dishes in Thailand and throughout Asia is Rendang Chicken or Beef Curry. Rendang is considered a "dry" curry, which means the sauce is simmered down to a minimum. Because it is so distilled, the sauce sticks to the meat, making this dish one of the most flavorful I have ever tried. And its wide variety of spices make it extremely healthy. If you like curry, you'll love Rendang - guarenteed!
