The ingredients for green curry paste are similar to those for red curry paste, except green chilies are often used in place of red.

Yellow curry paste

Yellow curry paste is also similar to both red and green curry pastes, but it is made with turmeric, whence it derives its yellow colour, and occasionally yellow chili peppers.
