DIY Red Curry Paste – พริกแกงแดง
If you are already able to do the Green Curry Paste this will be a piece of cake. The only difference is the color of the chilies. Thai cooking can be so simple :-)!
If not, don’t worry. It is as easy as it looks. And if you can’t handle spicy food just use less paste for the dish you are preparing.
- Lemon Grass
- Red onions or Shallots
- Black Pepper Corns
- Dried Red Chilies
- Finger Root Ginger not really necessary, often difficult to obtain
- Here the ingredients for the Red Curry Paste in the right relation to each other. Just add a good pinch of salt
- Put all ingredients, including (sea) salt in a mortar.
- Grind the ingredients into a fine paste - et voila: Red Curry Paste

Hi Joy – I have a query about the delicious red curry paste. I made some about 6months ago and haven’t used it for a while. It has been kept in a container in the fridge. Would it still be OK to use? Cheers ! Kathy from Melbourne
Wigh a little effort you still can use it. Most curry pastes last pretty long in the fridge, with massaman and penang lasting the longest. Red and green curry pastes stay fresh for about 2 month. After that just heat up some oil in a pan and fry the curry paste in it before use.
