I do love a quick curry and this paste makes that possible. It’s raining, mid week, you have to drop/pick kids up from all and sundry and you really don’t want take out again!! So fry up some onion, garlic, chilli, with a few spoonfuls of this, add coconut milk, protein and veggies and dinner is sorted. (Don’t forget to steam the rice!) It is very versatile and so fragrant, you will be sending me thank you emails...or comments. Thanks, either way! Enjoy.
