Matsaman Curry ( Gang Garee Gai )


A yellow curry using a premade curry paste. You can make the curry paste yourself if you wish, I will include a recipe for it in future, however it involves a lot of pounding in a Thai mortar and we usually use the ready made paste when in Thailand. So if you want to cook authentic Thai matsaman curry, then strictly speaking it's more authentic to use the ready made paste!
