Recently in one of the many food conversations I had with a coworker, the subject of Thai curry came up and she said that she gets her curry paste from her neighbors who, of course, are authentic Thai that make their own curries. Once I heard that, I knew I had to get my hands on some... beg, plead, anything! Luckily my coworker is awesome and none of that had to take place before she got some from me. I was one happy camper.
So finally, even though she had given me that curry paste for a couple of weeks now, after another sudden Thai food discussion at work today, I decided I'm going to try the paste out (mainly because now I'm craving Thai food).
I didn't have all the traditional ingredients I normally see in my curry but I was close enough so....
add a little bit of green onions
a little bit of bell peppers
a protein source (ground turkey or beef but I'm saving the beef for another dish...so ground turkey it was!) usually chicken breast of beef
and of course, can't forget the noodles!
plus a few more things here and there and a heavenly dish is created!
