Khmer Chicken Red Curry Recipe

A close cousin of the traditional Thai red curry, the Cambodian or Khmer red curry is also similar to its Thai counterpart but less spicy. The flavorsome coconut-milk-based curry is a traditional preparation in Cambodia and can be made with beef, chicken or fish, eggplant, green beans, potatoes, fresh coconut milk, lemongrass, and kroeung. Usually made on special occasions like festivals, parties, and gathering, the curry is conventionally served with French bread but can also be had with noodles or rice. This delish recipe guides you through an authentic Khmer curry to light up your meal.
