Thai Yellow Curry Paste is a warm, mildly spicy, and bright yellow-colored condiment that is one of the main ingredients used in Thai Yellow Curry. It is usually made with fresh spices like galangal, lemongrass, whole spices, and basic Asian ingredients. This Homemade Yellow Curry Paste is one of the best and easy-to-make condiments that can be used in Thai curries, stir-fries, soups, or recipes that call for it.
Best Flavor - Adding the ingredients like lemongrass, galangal, and fish sauce delivers the authentic taste and flavor to your paste. But I have also suggested some alternatives if some of the ingredients are not handy for you
Galangal or Ginger - Galangal delivers the sharp, spicy, and peppery flavor of this paste but you can also substitute it with ginger if that's handy for you
Substitute For Fish Sauce - Thai curry paste usually has fish sauce and shrimp paste for the unique salty umami flavors. However, you can also use tamari sauce or oyster sauce for similar results and to make it veg or vegan-friendly curry paste
How to use - Saute this yellow curry paste in oil until aromatic and then add your favorite veggies and proteins. Simmer everything in coconut milk for a delicious Thai curry.
