Thai Yellow curry, outside Thailand, usually refers to the Thai-Muslim dish kaeng kari. This curry is richer and creamier than other Thai curries, since coconut cream is used in addition to coconut milk. This richer curry tends to tone down the overall spiciness of the dish, hence its popularity on menus outside of Thailand. The primary spices in kaeng kari are cumin, coriander, turmeric, fenugreek, garlic, salt, bay leaf, lemongrass, cayenne pepper, ginger, mace and cinnamon. Sometimes a touch of palm sugar or a similar sweetener will be added, depending on the sweetness of the coconut milk.
Thai yellow curry can be made with duck, chicken, shrimp, fish or vegetables and is eaten with steamed rice or round rice noodles known as khanom chin.
