Thai red curry paste is also available at your local open air market down the road if you just happen to live in Thailand. Which I do :D

Your picture looks amazing by the way! Almost exactly like a red curry I had at a roti stand here the other day. Although I thought roti were more Malaysian?

At least, this place was supposed to be Thai-Malaysian food. Maybe the curry was a Thai curry with roti. I wouldn't really know what a real red curry looks like (despite being here a solid 4 months at this point). We usually get green curry, if we're going to get a curry, because I don't do spicy so well.

Yeah, yeah, I know. I'm in Thailand, I'm going to have to get over it. I'm working on it ;)
