Hello,

I LOVE curry. I especially love Indian and Thai curry and other cuisines. When it comes to Indian I am extremely good at cooking India curry at home but I cheat and use Patak's rather than mix the pastes and spices together. Taking a spoonful of the stuff out of the Patak's can makes Indian curry so easy to make at home.

I was wondering if Thai curry had something similar to Patak's so that I can make easy thai curry at home?

Thanks!

Yes, I've bought green Thai curry paste. Sorry, I can't remember what brand, but it was just brown the meat and mix in some of the paste and it was absolutely delicious.

So, the stuff is out there.

We buy the Thai curry paste (Maesri brand) or we use Curry Simple for Thai curries.

Trader Joe's has a number of bottled Thai curry sauces that are very good. Like these:

Trader Joe's Thai Green Curry Simmer Sauce

Trader Joe's Thai Red Curry Sauce

Trader Joe's Thai Yellow Curry Sauce

Any easy way to make Thai curry?-maesri_panang_c.jpg

We buy the small cans of Maesri as well.

Can be quite spicy for the uninitiated. Following the directions on the can, you can easily cut the paste by half...or you can double up on the coconut milk...that is if you're apprehensive about the heat level.

Most super markets have an Asian section where you can buy cans bottles or packets of Thai flavoring ingredients for many Thai dishes. Something like this.
Thai tom yum paste mix, lobo brand, available online from ImportFood.com

Thanks - those ethnic sections often confuse me.

Where I live, most grocery chains carry Thai Kitchen brand and it's pretty good (although I am not an expert when it comes to Thai cooking.) I often add some coconut milk and a dash of hot peppers, maybe some fish sauce, depending on what I am cooking.

We usually use Aroy-D or Maesri brands. Available at an Asian market. We buy the green, yellow or Massaman curry. The green is very spicy, be careful.

Just follow the recipe and it will come out fine!
