I should have said in my previous post that to my palate, chocolate might pair better with a red curry.

Jenny, red would be my initial thought, but there's no harm in playing with one's food, LOL.

Red curry and chocolate... Hm. I'm not terribly familiar with the taste of red curry (I can't think of how it tastes right offhand, like I can with yellow curry) but I'll try both.

@Jenny That looks like a great powder to start with. Where can I get it?

That is a paste not powder and you can find it in any Asian market and some well stocked supermarkets. It also comes in smaller cans, like this.



Most Asian markets carry a wide variety of SE Asian curry pastes -- red, green, yellow, panang, masaman, choo chee, etc.

Fuzzy, think Thai or Sri Lankan flavors rather than Middle Eastern or Indian when you think of red curries.

Here are the ingredients in red curry paste: Ingredients: Dried red chili, garlic, lemon grass, salt, shallot, galanga, shrimp paste, kaffir lime peel, pepper.

Red curry paste is very versatile.

What is galanga? I've heard that used fairly interchangeably with ginger.

Sure, I'll post the results of the experiments when I get the chance to make it :D Right now, I just got the ingredients to make vegetarian miso ramen, so that's my next project.
