Karimix - Thai Green Curry Paste

Karimix - Thai Green Curry Paste

We have made Thai Green Curry often here at the ChileFoundry, it is one of our favourite dishes, so when we got this jar from Karimix we had to give it a go.

In the jar is a very thick paste with a dark green colour,  from which a wonderful smell emanates, strong hints of  shrimp paste, onions and garlic.  Many of the pastes we have sampled are much more oily and loose.  The  uncooked taste is a concentrated burst of flavours, not as hot as I was expecting, but I cannot now wait to make this curry for the family this evening.

Ingredients: Onions, Oil, Vinegar, Water, Spices, Salt, Sugar, Herbs, Garlic, Ginger, Onion Powder, Green Chilli, Shrimp Paste, Lemon Juice Concentrate.

Jar kindly provided by www.karimix.com

On the back of the jar is a simple recipe that we have decided to follow, on the web site they recommend adding some  Thai aubergines, sweet basil and coriander leaves.

Making the curry was simple, the instructions are simple to follow and you will get a very tasty curry at the end, and unlike many of the other sauces you don’t need to add suger to get the taste you are expecting.

The curry was not as liquid as I have had in Thai restaurants where the curry is almost a soup, but if you wanted that could easily be reproduced with the addition of some chicken stock.

We did find the curry very mild, but this is soon sorted with a nice fresh chilli finely slices and added when cooking, or if you have a range of heat requirements, just have a some on the table to sprinkle as needed.

At around £3.50 fora 175g jar from which you can get 2 good curries for 4 people this is very good value

How can they say “Made to an Authentic Thai Recipe” when in Thailand we use Thai Shallot not Onions, We use Galangal not Ginger, we don’t use lemon juice in our curry paste either etc.

I’m a Thai person and I do fresh home made curry paste, this make me fed up when they market in this way. Don’t say it make to authentic recipe when it not.

Hi Warunee, that could be worth you contacting the company direct to bring up these issues you have raised, we have taken all information from the labeling on the product. If the product is claiming to be authentic then it needs to be, you are right.
