Our Thai Red Curry Powder is a mild to medium-spicy powdered blend of chile peppers, garlic, galangal, lemongrass, Makrut lime, onion, and cilantro that hits all the sweet, sour, salty, and spicy flavor notes of traditional Thai curry and streamlines the process of creating this complex dish. This finely ground powder is flexible and easy to use, either dry or reconstituted into an authentic curry paste, which can be combined with coconut milk, fish sauce, vegetables, and meat or seafood to produce a delicious and balanced Thai curry dish.
While curries are most closely associated with Indian cuisine and are common in a number of other Asian countries, Thai curries differ in that they commonly utilize curry paste, a blend of chile peppers, aromatics, and spices. This paste is traditionally mixed with coconut milk, the fat from which helps to alleviate the heat of the curry paste. In Thai, curry is known as "gaeng phet," with "gaeng" referring to the liquid of the curry and "phet" denoting the heat or fire of the spice.
Thai red curry paste is traditionally ground using a mortar and pestle, although today it is more common to use a food processor if making a fresh red curry paste. Using our Thai Red Curry Powder streamlines the process while ensuring that every ingredient is of the highest quality.
Beyond its core use in Thai red curry, a number of other traditional Thai dishes are flavored with red curry paste, including satay sauce, fish cakes, and certain sausages. Thai Red Curry Powder can also be used to infuse red curry flavor into soups, sauces, salad dressings, crackers, and bread.
