Mae Ploy Curry Pastes

From Cookipedia

I sourced three 400g pots from Amazon for £11.04; December 2021

Since the Cock Brand pastes are now difficult to source, and very expensive [December 2021]. I went looking for an alternative. I soon found one: Mae Ploy Curry Pastes. They are very similar in heat, taste, and consistency. Similar to the Cock Brand pastes, as they are oil based, not water based, they can be stored in the freezer and the required quantity 'spooned' out immediately. Giving them an almost infinity shelf life - not he case if they are stored in the fridge.

I'm no expert on exactly what the various pastes should taste like, however they are all slightly different have interesting flavours. The make a brilliant curry with minimal effort. If you're not sure which one to try you cannot go far wrong with the Panang Curry Paste at £1.99 for 400g (free delivery on Amazon Prime)

How much Curry Paste should I use?

We like our curries to be spicy, but not burning hot. I use 2 heaped tablespoons of curry paste to a curry for two people.

Buy them from Amazon UK

Look at the offers on Amazon at the bottom of the page: 'Frequently bought together'. You can buy three or more of these tubs for a really good deal, if you're lucky!

They also sell these curry pastes in 1 kilo tubs, but you would need to be using them on an industrial scale to go through that amount of curry paste!
