It's all about the pastes,

and to make an authentic Thai curry you need an authentic Thai curry paste.
Hand cooked with no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. I have been making Thai curry pastes for more than 20 years. Today I make them using the same ingredients and techniques as I would in my native Thailand. No compromises. Enjoy, Nitsa.

Lamb Massaman Curry

by Nitsa Raymond

Lamb massaman curry is a truly luxurious dish. Lamb Shanks cooked in a massaman sauce become meltingly tender and the spices blend so harmoniously with the lamb it truly is a perfect match.

This is not an everyday curry so personally, I would stick with the oven for best results.

These also have the advantage of being grilled rather than deep-fried which some people may prefer.

Chiang Mai Pork Curry

by Nitsa Raymond

This curry is also known as Kaeng Hung Leh or Burmese style pork curry
Thai curry = coconut milk, right? Not so actually. The definition of a curry in Thailand is far looser than it is in the West and there are many Thai curries where coconut milk is totally absent. Some of these curries are most definitely not to the Western taste, this is certainly not the case with this curry, and in fact, I would go so far as to say it is one of the most palatable Thai curries for a Westerner. Therefore, you may ask why it is not better known in the West. I believe that the reason for this is that many Thai restaurants overseas are heavily dependent on commercially produced curry pastes and I have never seen one to make this dish.
