Once you have had the pleasure of home-made curry paste it is very hard to go back to the supermarket jar variety. This recipe is very simple and yields enough to make one curry today and one curry to have on standby for later.

Thai take away is huge in Sydney but I am often left feeling yucky afterwards. By making your own take away favourite at home you are 100% confident in the contents of each dish. Friday night is the perfect curry night. Instead of dialling for a take away give this simple yet delicious recipe and try… you will love it!
