Before, curry dishes would be the last ones that I would be picking out from a line-up of Asian dishes. I do eat them but the color and smell send me away a mile away. It's because my initiation to curry dishes was yellow curry chicken... done badly.
When it was first served to me, I remember looking at its unattractive paleness with the tips of some similarly-colored chicken parts peeking out from what seemed like curry soup. Then I got a whiff of its curry odor. It was horror at first sight. But, being an obedient child, I ate what was on the table. I barely recovered from that first curry dinner experience. Needless to say, I avoided curry dishes after that.
Only later in my life did I discover that there are a lot of kinds of curries and much better ways to cook them. There was a whole new curry world that greeted me with open arms. With more ways to cook them and different kinds of curry to choose from, I finally enjoyed a kind of dish that is surprisingly delicious. And yes, I also found the best recipe for yellow curry chicken that fits my palate.
This green curry version is equally wonderful and I enjoyed every single spoonful! I am now a big convert. Yes, I love curry dishes!
