About this deal

Just chop some onions and red peppers, fry them for 5 minutes, add the paste and fry for a further minute then add coconut milk and simmer down until it's almost at the thickness you want then add some prawns and cook them through for another 5 minutes. A delicious mixture of red chili peppers, lemon grass, garlic, kaffir lime peel, coriander and pepper makes Mae Ploy curry paste the ideal base for your curry.

For each type of paste, there’s a basic expectation of what it should taste like; but like any recipe, everyone has their own specific formula, hence all these brands. The process is shown in the video above, but ingredients added include coconut milk, water, and just a little sugar. If I'm cooking for kids or people who cannot handle any spiciness at all, then Thai Kitchen would be a safe choice. There is essentially NO spiciness to speak of, and indeed this would be great for kids or your meat-and-potatoes-only friends. If you're sensitive to salt and can handle just a little spice, this is what I would use so that you have room to add more paste without fearing that it would become too salty or spicy.The Aroy-D curry paste I get contains no shrimp paste, however, a viewer has commented that he has seen a version that lists "shrimp powder" on the ingredient list.

However to my delight I just discovered my local produce market in Maple Ridge carries Mae Ploy curry paste in packets and tubs. Dried red chilli, garlic, lemongrass, salt, shallot, galangal, shrimp paste (shrimp, salt), kaffir lime peel, pepper. If there is any doubt in your mind about the accuracy of the data contained on this page, please ensure you check the product packaging before serving and contact us immediately. It's a bit messy and time consuming but worth it in the end, Just squish it all out and tamp it well down and it will last for up to a year in the fridge.Their name was likely derived from a German word meaning bug, because the leaves from the tree look like tree insects found in this region. I doubled up the paste for Thai Kitchen, and had to add significantly more fish sauce than Mae Ploy to bring it up to the optimal seasoning level.
