Mae Ploy Yellow Curry Paste is produced in Thailand with traditional and authentic ingredients, and no MSG, preservatives, or artificial colors. They blend Thai and Indian spices, particularly Lemongrass and Tumeric, so no need to gather all the ingredients or work that mortar and pestle. It also does not contain shrimp paste and is free of animal products.If you have never tried to make your own Thai Curry soups at home, now is the time to start. All you need is Mae Ploy Curry Paste, a can of coconut milk and your favorite vegetables and protein (maybe a dash of Red Boat Fish Sauce, too). You will not believe how easy it is and how much better it tastes when you make it at home.
