How to choose your curry paste?

To save time in the kitchen, I used a ready-made curry paste that I improved with a few ingredients (see recipe below). Here are some tips on how to choose the right curry paste.

Choose a paste and not a powder!

Although curry is often found as a powdered spice mix, to make an even tastier vegetable curry, I recommend choosing a curry paste.

Curry paste is a mixture of spices and condiments that are ground into a thick, homogeneous paste. You can find them in Asian grocery stores. The advantage is that they can be kept for months in the refrigerator.

Watch out for the different types of curry!

There are different types of curry. The best known are the following:

  • The red curry :this is the curry I used for this recipe. It is relatively spicy but the coconut milk helps to sweeten the curry. And if you feel like making your own curry paste, you can try my recipe for Homemade Thai Red Curry Paste.
  • Yellow curry: this is the mildest of the three curries. If you can’t find red curry paste, you can substitute it with yellow curry.
  • Green curry: this is the spiciest of the three. It is not ideal for this recipe. However, if you feel like trying a recipe, check out my recipe for Homemade Thai Green Curry Paste.

Choose a curry paste without preservatives

Ready-made curry pastes do not usually contain any preservatives or additives, as they have a long shelf life due to their composition. So check the list of ingredients if you are unsure.
