We are often asked in Skinnymixers for a Yellow Curry – well now we have a Skinnymixers version! 

What you will need:

Yellow curry Paste

Where to buy?

  • red cayenne chillies – I find it best to buy at the Asian supermarket. You can sometimes buy them in Coles, however they can sometimes be super hot! If you can’t find dried red chillies, you can roast fresh chillies for flavour and add those instead.
  • roasted shrimp past (Belachan) – The Jeeny’s Roasted Shrimp Paste is found in Woolworths and Asian supermarkets. Don’t stress if you can’t find ‘roasted’ shrimp paste, you can use normal shrimp paste if needed. I just feel roasted has a better depth of flavour.
  • Malaysian Style Curry Powder – this is now a free recipe found here or printed in all our latest books. It is a Babas Malaysian Meat Curry Powder substitute
  • onion shallot – these are the sweeter little brown/purple shallots and not the long green spring onions.
  • lemongrass – you can buy this from the supermarket in the fresh herb section. You may find it cheaper from the local fruit shop or Asian grocer. Check out the how to prepare video below on how to prepare it.

How to portion

I find it easiest to freeze in snap lock bags or silicone pouches. You can also freeze in silicone cupcake moulds, pop them out and store in the freezer in a container.

Divide evenly into 4 portions. It is ok that each portion isn’t perfect. I guarantee that it will be one tasty recipe!
