Vegetarian Friendly Thai Curries *Asian Grocery Store

So, as I promised on my Facebook page here is a mini haul of Thai curry pastes which are vegetarian friendly. I made a trip to a nearby Asian grocery store and took some pictures in-store.

Note: Avoid Thai curry pastes that has scallops, shrimp, or fish sauce. If you can’t figure out any ingredient then just Google it. I am sure there is always one vegetarian friendly curry paste in the grocery store. So don’t give up. 🙂

I have used the products of this well known Thailand company named ‘Namprik Maesri’ for almost 6 years now, and trust me I like them a lot. Maesri doesn’t carry all the pastes which are vegetarian friendly, but I found six curry pastes and one dipping sauce which are absolutely vegetarian friendly.

They are packed with flavors and you just 2-3 tablespoons curry paste per coconut can. So I always freeze the rest of the paste in the freezer and it stays well for months. Moreover, this brand is easily available in almost all the Asian grocery stores.

Here are my recommendations:


Panang Curry Paste

Kaeng Par Curry Paste


Prik Khing Curry Paste


Green Curry Paste


Satae Sauce: Warm this dipping sauce and serve it with veggie eggrolls, fresh spring rolls, or Asian dumplings.
