Karee curry paste, also known as yellow curry paste, is a fundamental component in creating Karee curry, a type of Thai curry known for its mild, aromatic, and slightly sweet flavor profile. Unlike green or red curry pastes, Karee curry paste is not as spicy but still offers a rich and complex taste.

The ingredients typically used in Karee curry paste include turmeric, shallots, garlic, lemongrass, galangal (or ginger), coriander seeds, cumin seeds, white peppercorns, and sometimes additional spices like cardamom or cinnamon. Some variations may also include shrimp paste for added depth of flavor.

Similar to other Thai curry pastes, the ingredients are traditionally pounded together using a mortar and pestle until a smooth paste is formed. However, modern methods often involve using a food processor or blender for convenience.

Karee curry paste is versatile and can be used not only to make Karee curry but also to flavor other dishes such as soups, stir-fries, and marinades. Its vibrant yellow color comes from the turmeric and adds visual appeal to dishes. Adjusting the ratio of spices allows for customization of flavor, making it suitable for a variety of taste preferences.
