Chile Paste at Nakhon Si Thammarat Market
Here’s a close-up of some “home-made” chile paste available at the Nakon Si Thammarat market. I once was offered a taste in a market and accepted; man was it spicy! The vendor got a good chuckle out of my red face! For an example of how much work goes into some of these pastes, check out Kasma’s recipe for Green Curry from scratch (opens in new window).
