Mae Ploy Curry Paste?
Does anyone know where I can buy Mae Ploy curry paste? I haven't seen it since I've moved here (to DC), and am willing to drive to MD or VA if necessary!
I miss my curry so any help would be much appreciated!!
I'm surprised you can't find it anywhere. Try an H Mart. The Catonsville (Baltimore suburb) H Mart has it in plastic containers, not tin cans. I prefer Mae Ploy over Maesri because I find Mae Ploy's blends more pungent. E.g., the Mae Ploy panang curry paste contains shrimp paste while the Maesri panang curry paste does not.
Super H Mart will always have this product. You'll want to mix it with coconut milk and palm sugar if you're making any kind of Thai curry. Good luck!!
I've seen it (many types) in the plastic tubs at Eden Center (the grocery store there). I live in the District, so would steer you in the city if I knew of a place. I went to Hana last week, didn't see it there, but wasn't looking for it at the time. If you find it in DC, let me know, would save a trip!
