Can someone please explain to me what the difference is?  I see a number of recipes using Red Thai Curry and wonder if I was to substitute the red for green, how would the change impact on the flavour ...

sorry gov, don't know (btw sounds yum!), but isn't there a general difference in hotness between the green and red peppers & chilis?

it depends on what's in them, red paste has of red chillies, green paste has green chillies, yellow paste has yellow chillies.
plus they each have a variation of other ingredients like lemon grass, coriander, galangal, ginger, spices...
there is subtle differences in flavour and heat levels, but most of the time they are pretty much the same, apart from the colour of course Smiley

I know it's late but...

Red curry uses red chillies and peppers, then the usual suspects with lemongrass, galangal, ginger etc
Green curry uses many of the same ingredients, but has a stronger shrimp paste component

I haven't found a yellow curry I like, so haven't taken it apart yet...

I did see a jar of "Jungle Curry" the other day - the mind boggled...
