I know some of you are going to ask why am I not making my own curry paste? I could say it is because I do not have the time. But honestly I have never even tried to make one. Apart from my mum, I do not know of another Thai person who makes their own curry paste.

Every Thai restaurant I have ever worked in has always bought ready made curry paste. They do have their favourite brand and will not change from it but never have they made it fresh.

The trick is to freshen (I think that is a word?) the ready made curry paste to make it taste homemade and fresh. What you need to do is very slowly fry the curry paste in some vegetable oil. You will be able to smell the paste come to life and the colour of the paste changes.

There is no need to be ashamed in using ready made Thai curry paste. Authentic Thai curry paste requires ingredients like Kaffir lime rind, galangal, shrimp paste which are not easy to find in most  supermarkets.

It is lovely if you can make your own curry paste, I prefer the ready made.

Enjoy

Thai Green Beef Curry
Instructions
  1. Fry the curry paste in a saucepan on low with vegetable oil and a little coconut milk. Use the thicker part first. Adding in a bit of coconut milk at a time to make sure the paste does not burn. You are looking for a nice shine from the coconut milk.
  2. Once you have added about 5 tbsp of the coconut milk, then add in the sugar and fish sauce. Cook until the sugar has dissolved. Add in the beef.
  3. Once the beef has started to cook pour in the rest of the coconut milk and stock. Bring the curry to the boil then simmer for a few minutes.
  4. Taste and adjust to your liking. Take the curry of the heat and add in the red chilli and Thai basil. Serve with Thai fragrant rice.
Recipe Notes
