WHERE TO BUY RED THAI CURRY PASTE

This is probably your first thought? Am I right! Well I got you covered. First off you want to buy the right Thai curry paste or it will not taste as authentic. 

Trust me, I have tried them all. And swear by only one brand, you will see that brand below. Here in Canada this can be found in almost every ethnic aisle at your local Superstore.

If you do not have a superstore, then you are going to have to shop around. Ideally, at a asian market. 

In Thailand this paste is made from scratch with Kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass and galangal, red thai chilies, anchovy paste and a bunch of spices.

Which is all grinded to a paste in a mortar. If you really want to make it from scratch here is an excellent recipe for Thai Red Curry Paste.

MY FAVORITE RED THAI CURRY PASTE = PREMADE!

As you may know I love Thai food and make it a lot in our home. Actually I make it every week, because I crave it that much. With any of my Thai recipes, you will learn that you really only need a few ingredients in your fridge and pantry to make any of them easily.

And that is because, I have been making homemade Thai recipes for years. And have learned all the tricks to making it quickly and healthily for just about anyone who loves it. 

IS RED THAI CURRY SPICY

Depending on the amount of Red Thai Curry Paste you use, it can be. This paste above calls for 2 tbsp per serving. I tend to use a bit more as I like the spice.

WHAT DOES RED THAI CURRY TASTE LIKE

Red Thai Curry has hints of spice, tang and sweet flavors. It really is something special and this recipe has all the same tastes that you would find at your local Thai restaurants too!

Red Thai Curry is just a bit milder than Green thai Curry, however both taste similar. There are plenty different ways to make Thai curry and that is because you can add just about any type of vegetable or meat protein to your dishes.

It is not only easy to prepare it is also so healthy for you and makes you feel so satisfied. Just look at all those fresh vegetables and low cal chicken pieces. What more can you ask for in a Red Curry than that!
