Curry Paste for Sale (Wednesday Photo)

Krabi Market Curry Paste

Curry Paste for Sale

Fresh curry paste outside Krabi Market

In Thailand, you can find fresh made curry pastes such as in this photo in nearly any market. Here in the United States when we make curry, we generally are limited to pre-made curry pastes, such as Mae Ploy brand, when making Thai curries. The front paste in the photo is used to make Gaeng Som, a fiery hot southern curry.

This picture was actually taken on a street just outside the lively, fresh market in Krabi, Thailand. We’ve blogged previously on the Krabi Morning Market. We’ve also had a previous Wednesday photo of a curry paste vendor in Nakhon Si Thammarat.

The Wednesday Photo is a new picture each week highlighting something of interest in Thailand. Click on the picture to see a larger version.
