Tom Yum Paste
Shrimp Tom Yum or Tom Yum Goong must be one of the best known Thai dishes abroad. It's a subtle blend of hot and sour with citrus overtones derived from lime juice and kaffir lime peel. Be careful not to overcook shrimps as they will become tough very easily.
Green Curry Paste
Green Curry Paste which is made mainly from fresh green chili is used to make the hottest of all Thai curried. To make the dish even more flavourful, add 1/2 cup of fresh green peppercorns to the curry mixture.
