Distinctive Flavours: This Thai red curry paste features several ingredients unique to the Asian region of the world. Red chillies are the main ingredient, the presence of which gives an acceptable level of spiciness. Although chillies are not originally from Asia, they have nonetheless become a staple in Thai cuisine. Lemongrass did however originate in Asia and is commonly used in Thai and Vietnamese foods. Kaffir limes are an interesting fruit which are also native to Southeast Asia. Their name was likely derived from a German word meaning bug, because the leaves from the tree look like tree insects found in this region.
