From my food preservation yahoo group. Thai Red Curry and Penang Curry are similar. The difference is that the Penang version carries with it flavors from distant places - Malaysia, Burma, India (Penang is a state in northern Malaysia). Try this homemade red curry recipe with beef, chicken, tofu, wheat gluten, or beans and vegetables - you'll love its aroma and unique blend of flavors!
