Enjoy the fresh flavor of the green pepper and coriander stems used to make the curry paste in this recipe. The coconut milk sweetens the curry and turns it to a rich green color. That’s why it’s called gaeng kheow waan (or “sweet green curry”). It was originally invent- ed by Thai cooks who modified red curry by switching green peppers for red peppers and using coconut milk instead of water.
