The color of food is an important indicator.
Color psychology in food
- Green A grassy flavor may indicate vitamins and nutrients.
- Red often tells us what we’re about to eat is sweet, or ripe and rich in umami.
- WhiteWhen viewed as a lack in color, it can be interpreted to mean a total lack of taste.
White food is dull, bland and lacks any notable nutritional value. A brightly colored dish will arouse instant appetite, but white does not.
It’s a shame that what appears to be a white color is actually the reflection of all colors in the rainbow. White is the ultimate color changer, hiding a multitude of different spices. That’s why curry, found in every brilliant hue under the sun, is a particularly dangerous dish to cloak in bright white.
This recipe is sure to be your new favorite. This is curry in a new color.
What is White Curry Curry?
Curry is often made with creamy coconut milk, which smooths out the sharp edges of spicy spices and gives it a rich, cooling finish. Most are tinted with yellow turmeric, and/or red or green chilies, but there’s more than one way to add a fiery bite to your food. The white curry I make uses tiny, but powerful Hungarian wax chilies along with pale Hungarian peppers.
