Another Thai favorite, Green Curry tends to be one of the milder curries of Thai cuisine. The name Gaeng Kiaw Wan literally means "sweet green curry" but if you prefer a spicy curry, simply increase the amount of chilli peppers. Fragrant and creamy, this dish can be made with chicken, beef, pork, or shrimp.
