Jungle Thai Curry Paste

Watch how to cook a Mae Jum curry!

The Thai Jungle curry is the spiciest curry in our selection. With the immense flavours from the black pepper, red chilli and shallots give an intense but delicious taste to every mouthful, and can truly be addictive!. This curry can be either watery with plenty of vegetables and chicken, or thicker with slowly stewed pork ribs, a family favourite.

Our Thai Curry pastes are made with 100% natural ingredients, fresh from local farmers in Thailand. The paste is so full of flavour that one pack is all you need for 8 servings. Suitable for vegans and vegetarians too!

How it’s made

The famous dish from northern Thailand, you may notice the absence of certain herbs and spices like coriander and cumin as all the ingredients used would have been forage in the jungle! Wild meats are usually cooked in a jungle curry which you may find hard to obtain, but pork and red meat work just a good!

We only use the best quality herbs and spices, you will find red chilli, green chilli, black pepper, shallots, turmeric, lemongrass, kaffir lime rind, garlic, galangal and rock salt in our Thai Jungle curry paste. Traditionally, jungle curry paste is cooked in water, which makes the flavours even more intense, providing a real authentic taste of Thailand.

Origin & Type

Jungle curry, or “forest curry” is a curry that originated in the northern forested areas. Since coconuts are not normally found in the inland jungles areas, this curry usually excludes coconut milk completely, although it is possible to add it for a milder flavour.

The combination of water with the Thai Jungle paste can create the most traditional way to make this type of curry, leaving the flavours to speak for itself. Often cooked with Thai seasonal vegetables such  green peppercorns and using fresh herbs and chilli to cool down.

Kind Words from Our Customers

So tasty, so far we tried the yellow, red and green Thai curry and we love them they've got great flavour as well as a good kick to them. We'll be reordering soon!

Simply the best Thai curry pastes - full stop. They are all distinctly different and the best, nothing rivals them. We have Thai curry every week and they are absolutely fantastic. As we are two person household, we simply freeze the unused paste for another week, the flavours don't degrade or alter. They never dissapoint.

Great delivery. The currypastes from this company is by far the best I've ever had. Very nuanced flavour, and you can really taste the various ingredients. Will never go back to normal supermarket paste, as the price and quality of these ones are next level!

I ordered 3 packs of the Jungle Curry paste and this stuff is the real deal. I’ve managed to make jungle curry taste like when I had it in Thailand. Warning - this paste is very hot. I’m no stranger to spicy food, having a pretty good tolerance, but this stuff is potent. You may wish to not use the full sachet the first time you try it.
