Many aspects of the red curry are no different to the green; the coconut base, a soup-like curry sauce, the cooking method, even many of the ingredients are the same, only in different proportions. The obvious difference however is the paste where red curry uses dried red chillies over the green curry which uses (hotter) fresh green chilli peppers. Red curry is generally the less fiery of the two but this really depends on who makes the chilli paste. Red curry tends to be less sweet, more savoury.
