Curry Paste Selection
If you’ve ever taken a look at the selection in your grocery store, you may have noticed a variety of different curry pastes. From red, to yellow, green, Massaman and Panang.
Curry paste is a staple of mine. There’s no doubt that nothing compares to homemade, but when you want to quickly satisfy your curry cravings, store-bought curry paste is a convenient way to do it.
You may be wondering what the differences are between curry pastes. Yellow curry has a mild flavour and is PACKED with aromatics and spices such as turmeric, shallot, lemongrass and more! It gets its yellow colour from turmeric and curry powder and is less spicy than the green variety.
A twist on authentic Thai yellow curry
Traditional Thai yellow curry can be typically made with chicken, potatoes, onion, palm sugar and more. This version has its own twist by using salmon, mango for sweetness plus pepper and peas to pack in the vegetables.
Although this is not an authentic yellow curry by any means, this dish packs in the flavour with every bite.
Substitute if you like!
If salmon isn’t your favourite, substituting another protein such as chicken or shrimp with do! That’s the beauty of cooking! Anything is adjustable to fit your taste.
In 30 minutes, you can enjoy a satisfying bowl of the creamy yellow curry kissed with the wonderful sweetness of mango. You’ll be surprised at how easy it is!
