I highly recommend making your own Thai curry pastes! There are some good red Thai curry pastes available at supermarkets and online but you will notice the difference.
When I’m feeling lazy, I use this brand or Thai red curry paste.
For best results, you will want to pound the ingredients in a pestle and mortar. Warning… this can take up to a half hour but breaking those fibers down into a paste makes a curry paste like nothing you can purchase.
You could also pound the ingredients for about ten minutes and finish up in a blender which will be almost as good.
Thai red curry paste isn’t just used in Thai red curry!
There are so many other recipes you can make with it and I will be adding them to the blog very soon.
