2 Servings

I first learned how to make Thai curry pastes at a wonderful cooking school in Ao Nang, Thailand. Once you have learned how to make a curry paste like the one below, you can experiment with different ingredients to adapt the paste recipe and make a wide variety of curries!


The yellow curry paste gets its colour from ground turmeric and is medium spiced which appeals to a wider audience. It goes perfectly with the butternut squash as you can still taste the sweetness of the squash.


This recipe could be adapted to include a variety of different vegetables or even seafood such as prawns.

Medium spiced yellow Thai curry with chicken and butternut squash.

Dried red chillies are soaked I'm hot water to soften them.

Then a fragrant yellow curry paste is blended.

The sweetness of the squash pairs perfectly with the yellow paste.
