Hot tip!

* Check the ingredient list of your curry paste to ensure that it doesn’t contain shrimp paste or fish sauce. The brands Ayam and Five Tastes have red curry pastes that happen to be vegan, and they’re available at most major supermarkets or Asian stores. If you like your curries very hot, Maesri red curry paste is also vegan.
