What’s better, curry powder or curry paste?

In India and Asia, curry paste is part of the recipe. Spices are first roasted, then ground with a pestle and mortar, add oil (sesame or peanut oil or ghee in India, and coconut oil in Thailand) and a generous helping of fresh aromatic herbs (crushed garlic, grated ginger, chopped coriander and parsley, sliced lemongrass …) and you're ready to go! This spicy paste is then added to the sauce of your dish for a delicious curry.

Cooks Tip: It is simple to find rich easy-to-use curry paste to add to your dishes. But it's just as easy to make your very own curry paste using the ingredients you have to hand and a pinch of inspiration. It's all a matter of taste.

This popular Thai mix is quite spicy and is delicious with meat, prawns and tofu. Add 1 or 2 teaspoons to some coconut oil, add 20 cl of coconut milk then leave your meat to marinate in the delicious flavours for about 10 mins.
