    Default Curry made with store bought paste??

    I have never made a curry as I have only just started to like it. I want to make one just using store bought paste to start but I have no idea what flavours or brands are nice. Can someone please point me in the right direction?

    I use pataks curry pastes. Very easy to use (just follow the direction on the jars). Make sure you get paste not simmer sauce, I find them much nicer. Korma is a favourite here.

    Pataks are good- you can add extra garlic, fresh ginger, onion and spices (eg: cumin seeds and garam masala) if you want to lift the flavour a bit. I agree def go for the paste ones not the full simmer sauce jars.

    I was going to add, if you have a slow cooker, you could do up a huge batch so you can use up the whole jar in one go. Yum.

    We also use Pataks for Indian curries.

    For Thai we use Maesri (they are available from woollies and come in a little tin).

    If you like Thai food then the Thai pastes are also good. The volcom brand is pretty good
