Sometimes you just need a smooth texture and Passata is just the stuff to replace a can of chopped toms, cheaper too!
We picked this up a while again with a view to stop buying Curry Leaves and just popping a few sprigs of this in instead, there’s a lot of confusing info on the internet about what’s it good for and tastes like but we’ll start by using it sparingly and report our findings later.
These are a great addition to any Thai curry and they come in cans, how handy is that!
The only thing “Lazy” about these chillies is we’re using their jar. We use a 2:1 mix of mild and hot chillies in a white wine vinegar pickle.
We’ve tried loads of different kinds but nothing comes close to these, all the small expensive jars in the world can’t top these. Word to the wise tho, only ever use 1 tablespoon of these pastes, even if the recipe calls for 3, don’t say we didn’t warn you!
Not all coconut milks are alike and if we’re honest we’ve never been fans of creamy coconutty curry until we found this in a can, not too sweet, smooth texture and not too coconutty – if that makes sense. Seek it out and buy at least 4 cans, you’ll be needing it.
