Thai Panang Chicken Curry

17 December 2019 By

A rich, warm red curry with flavour notes from Malaysia (Penang) Burma, and India.

To make this curry from scratch involves a long list of ingredients.  With our Thai Red Curry Paste, you can be eating this Panang curry with little to no preparation and your dish will carry a deep rich, complex flavour it’s meant to have.

Traditionally, a curry like this would be simmered over a wood fire or on a stovetop.  For ease of preparation, our recipe can even be finished off in your oven or pressure cooker.
