I love curry dishes, especially panang curry. Panang curry is not difficult to make at home, but it is time consuming. The payoff, however, is worth it. Store bought paste is OK, but nothing will come close if you make fresh panang curry paste. Also, the paste keeps in the freezer for at least a month.
