Sour (Kang Som) Curry Paste (100 g) by Mae Sri

Sour Curry Soup is a refreshing light dish. Sour Curry Soup or as Thaiís refer to it as Kang Som is the most famous southern Thailand dish. The dish is popular throughout Thailand, especially in the south. A very important ingredient necessary for the dish is the Sour curry paste. The tangy paste is made of pounded red chillies and flavored shrimp paste. The paste contains tamarind. Tamarind gives the soup its sour, authentic taste and the red chillies give the dish its spicy flavour.

Tamarind is not only delicious but eating it is good for your health. Tamarind helps fight vitamin C deficiency, helps lower cholesterol and helps prevent and fight colds. Another benefit of consuming Tamarind is that it contains antioxidants that fight against cancer.

Sour curry soup is a very popular dish in central and southern Thailand. It is now becoming popular among foreigners too. The Southern soup tastes more spicier than the central Thailand version of dish. The central Thailand version of the dish is more sweet and sour.
