It originates from Thai cuisine and is known for its spicy, tangy, and slightly sweet flavor profile.

The ingredients commonly found in Prik Khing curry paste include dried red chilies, shallots, garlic, galangal (or ginger), lemongrass, kaffir lime zest, cilantro roots or stems, shrimp paste, and spices such as coriander seeds and cumin seeds. Some variations may also include ingredients like Thai basil leaves or additional spices for added complexity.

To make Prik Khing curry paste, the ingredients are traditionally pounded together using a mortar and pestle until they form a smooth paste. However, modern methods often involve using a food processor or blender for convenience.

Prik Khing curry paste is versatile and can be used not only to make Prik Khing curry but also to flavor other stir-fries, soups, and marinades. Its bold and spicy flavor pairs well with a variety of proteins and vegetables, making it a popular choice in Thai cooking. Adjusting the amount of dried red chilies allows for customization of spiciness to suit individual preferences.
