Dynamic Duo

Curry paste and coconut milk. They may not be on the pantry forefront, but if you dig deep enough you’ll always find them at my house. I’m a fan of the maesri brand, they have a wide variety of curry pastes, available for under a dollar a can. And there are no funky unnatural ingredients such as colors, sugars or msg.***

Together they make a foundation on which you can lay just about any combination of vegetables and protein . . . even fruit. When I find myself with an awkward mix of vegetation in my fridge, It almost always becomes a curry.

I just sauté some onion ad garlic (and ginger if it’s around) add a tablespoon of the curry paste, toast the whole mix just a bit and add the coconut milk, and then simmer the protein (meat/fish/seafood/tofu) and voila!

You have a great meal.

***Upon further investigation. The sour curry pictured above actually has some msg. I picked it up to try a new flavor and haven't yet cracked it open. None of the other flavors I've come across contain msg.
