Green Thai Curry Paste

Watch how to cook a Mae Jum curry!

Thai green curry is one of our medium spiced curries, similar to Thai red curry except that it gets its signature colour from the green chillies.

Using ingredients such as sweet Thai basil, coriander and kaffir lime leaves contributes to the authentic taste of a Thai green curry. When used in recipes, is uncompromising, real and beyond challenge. This paste is full of flavour, that 1 pack can serve 8 people!

How it’s made

There are various types of green chillies, some are hot, while others are sweet. Mixing these types of chillies produce the right balance of colour and heat. A southern Thai green curry can be quite spicy, although it does have a mild sweetness to it too.

In fact, in the Thai name for “Green curry”, there is the word “wan” which means “sweet”. However, this doesn’t relate to its sweetness, but to the colour “sweet green”. To enhance the green colour and immense flavour, the addition of kaffir lime leaves and Thai sweet basil help to intensify the curry.

Origin & Type

Originating at the start of the 20th century, during the reign of King Rami 6 or 7, the ingredients do vary from region to region. It includes fish or meat, a coconut milk base, seasoned with palm sugar and shrimp paste or fish sauce. Typically, aubergines and baby (pea) aubergines are used, but other green vegetables can be used.

The sauce is usually quite thin and depends on the amount of coconut milk and water used. Can be made into a mild, but flavoursome curry to serve with a wider selection of dishes in a meal and eaten with steamed rice or Khamon Chin noodles. Green curry can be made thicker and spicer by adding less coconut milk and can be eaten with flatbread, as can other variants.

Quick delivery and a high-quality product. I bought the Taster Bundle and have had the red curry so far. I only needed a small amount of paste and froze the remainder. Very tasty and authentic.

Amazing product. I’ve been recommending these to my friends and they all love it. Am buying these for the 3rd time now and bought 2 sets for friends as gifts. They should have a loyalty scheme for customers like me.
