Panang Curry

Thai panang curry (also spelled penang like the northern Malaysian state) is a warm, rich red curry with flavor notes from Malaysia, Burma, and India. The list of ingredients for the paste is long, but without this breadth and variety your dish would lack the rich, complex flavor it is renowned for. Traditionally, this curry would be simmered over a wood fire but we find that a stovetop does the job perfectly!.
