Thai curries are often on the dinner menu at my house because they are delicious and so easy to prepare. Simply chop the vegetables, sauté the curry paste, add the coconut milk and vegetables and wait until they're cooked. It goes without saying that a good curry paste is essential for a tasty Thai curry and I like to make my own. My curry paste is vegan and contains no fish sauce or the like, but it tastes just as good as regular curry paste and is perfect in a coconut vegetable curry with rice or another type of grain on the side. The paste can also be used for a spicy soup.
