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.

  1. 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

    1. Hi Kathy,
      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.
