The three overriding attractions of Thai food are the tastes, the textures and the aromas.  When we say about aroma it mainly comes from three important pastes that are used in Thai cooking;  Green curry paste, Red curry paste and yellow Curry paste.  Next the texture should come either from vegetables or meat.  If both are satisfied then it eventually tickles our taste buds right.  Yah today's post is Red curry noodles which will surely be a good virtual treat.  Hope You all enjoy the taste, texture and aroma virtually. 

 Check out the Green curry here.  Follow the same one for making Red curry as well.  Just Substitute with this Red curry paste.
