Panang curry paste starts out with the same ingredient as red curry paste but cumin is what sets it apart from others. To cook Panang curry, you will need Panang curry paste since it plays a big portion of your final flavor.
Ingredients: Red curry paste (dried red chili, shallot, lemon grass, garlic, salt, galangal, makrut lime zest, coriander seed, cumin powder), water, safflower oil, 100% freshly squeezed lemon juice and cumin.
Directions: Stir 1 heaping TSP of Thai & True Panang Curry Paste in medium-heated oil. Add choice of protein and veggies. Then, add 1 cup of coconut milk. Bring it to simmer and serve.

Parang curry to me is a nutty curry, and this tasted like regular red curry paste. I looked on the ingredients and saw nothing to give a nutty flavor. My expectation may not be authentic, but if you were looking for nutty flavor plan on adding that yourself.
Love to support small businesses. Love the flavor but wont be buying again, they could do better than using inflammatory seed oils. All the other ingredients are clean and make for a delicious curry. Wish they would look into making the switch. All that aside, its very tasty.
I'm Thai. I like to cook for my friends. Most of them are not Thai. I struggle to find authentic premade curries that are not too spicy for them but most American made curries don't taste right. The folks at Thai & True have done what others could not. They created an authentic tasting curry paste perfect for people who want some heat that doesn't chase them out of the kitchen.
Looking for Panang that’s as good as the restaurant. Not it. And I bought 4 jars based on reviews. Follows the recipe on the jar. Still looking.
I first found Thai and True about 7 years ago at a local market, tried it and we were hooked. It is absolutely the BEST curry paste you can buy. I always keep it on hand to make a curry using the paste, a can of coconut milk or cream and a little water, drop in a bunch of veggies and protein, and let simmer a few minutes and we have a meal that tops all others. We love it, and can't find it locally since we moved, but order it so we always have a backup stock on hand. Excellent product!!!
