Authentic Panang Curry Paste Recipe

10/11/2015 (Last Updated: 11/03/2020)

Learn how to make this Authentic Panang Curry Paste recipe from scratch. Full of fragrant herbs and warm toasted spices, it’s surprisingly easy to whip up a big batch of fresh curry paste made just the way you like it. Store in your freezer and it will be ready for your next curry cooking adventure. 

Why Make Panang Curry Paste From Scratch?

Okay we admit, pounding away at the mortar and pestle does take a little more effort than unscrewing the lid off a jar – about 40 minutes worth if we’re honest. But trust us. You need this in your life. It’s the curry therapy you’ve been waiting for. But despite the ‘effort’, it’s actually really easy to make your very own Authentic Panang Curry Paste at home. 

(Oooh here’s an idea! Why not throw a curry party, and make your friends earn their dinner? Make enough, and everyone can take home a portion!)

Real authentic homemade curry pastes are so much better because:

  • You control what you put in – real ingredients, fresh herbs and spices make all the difference. Pre-made pastes will always be inferior, requiring stabilisers and sometimes preservatives to made them last on the shelves.
  • You control the spice – love the heat? Up the chillis! Be sure to throw in a few extra colourful birds eye chillis for that kick you’ve been waiting for. But if you don’t want to risk a burnt tongue, play it cool and tone it down. So simple!
  • You can make up a big batch and store for later use – just place your paste in ice cube trays, seal up in a plastic bag and freeze overnight. The next day, pop your frozen curry cubes into an airtight container and store in the freezer.
