  7. Yum! I love Thai food too. I tried making a red curry too, i used a store bought red paste but I was not at all happy with its taste. Which brand do you use, and also, where do you get your kaffir lime leaves from? Sorry for all the questions! Thanks!

  8. Ann, thank you for visiting my blog and showing interest in my recipes! I use a brand called ‘Dancing Lady’. Kaffir lime leaves and all other herbs used in Thai food are readily available here in Singapore. 🙂
