Earlier this year, I was on a quest for Yellow Curry paste. A mission. An unforgiving journey.
Red Curry. Green Curry. Even Roasted Red Curry... but no yellow!
It became an obsession, a mania. I near gave up.
But leave it to Santa Clause to deliver where the city supermarkets cannot!
In my stocking this year, low and behold, YELLOW CURRY PASTE!!!!!!!!!!!There is a god! Or a Santa Clause...well an internet at least!
This stuff is amazing, and straight from Thailand, it should be! It needs absolutly nothing. No other spices or sauces - nothing! Just saute a spoonful of the paste, stir in some coconut milk to make a sauce, add in chicken, tofu, vegetables mushrooms, or whatever the hell your currying, pour over rice, serve with onion chutney or mango chutney, and thank god, santa, Thailand, your dad, or someone for the miracles of the world wide web!
