After adding the coconut milk the sauce was really tasteless. Think I'll stick to other brands.
First time I've tried this Tesco paste. Really not
First time I've tried this Tesco paste. Really not keen, unlikely to buy again. Made my usual butternut squash soup but had to use the whole jar to get good level of flavour. Also, whilst it does have 'some' heat - the flavour was almost soapy? Not an authentic Thai curry paste to me.
Not a paste, ruined a meal!
First off, the is a sauce not a paste. Secondly It doesn’t taste like Thai red curry at all. A Strong taste of lemongrass is the only ‘Thai’ flavour I could recognise. Bizarre that this is labelled as Thai paste, I actually had to check I hadn’t picked up a pasta sauce. I have promised to remake a Thai curry for my husband soon (to right a wrong!) and I will absolutely not be using this. Rest of the jar went in the bin.
this is the most bland red curry paste i’ve ever used it didn’t even have a paste texture if you like your curry really mild then maybe it would be ok.
Unpleasant petrol flavour!
Yuk! I’ve just returned my purchase of this product and complained. When I stirred it through my lovely brown rice and fried onions, which should have been so delicious, a weird flavour emerged, like petrol! I don’t know if that’s what it’s meant to taste like or if it had somehow been contaminated, but it was very nasty and I had to throw away all my carefully-prepared rice.
Great authentic taste when used with other spices
I used half a jar for a family go four and it is very flavoursome without blowing your head off with spice. I really like it. When used with fresh grated ginger, lemon grass paste, garlic and onion it makes a very authentic sauce.
Great for a plant food curry!
Great product - a quick & easy way to make a tasty plant food curry! Mix with coconut milk for extra creaminess. This little jar served us 6 meals!
Very disappointed in this product colour and taste found insipid with no depth, had to add ingredients to get it to resemble a semi decent paste
Great product, great result.
Has no flavour and is really not suitable for a Thai curry.
