- This is a Red Curry Kit – which I think is handy if you have never made a curry before, all the guesswork is taken out. It serves 4, which means per portion, the carbs only go up to 3.1g per serve.
Valcom Red Curry Paste
Water, shallot, lemongrass, sunflower oil, galangal, garlic, salt, dried red chilli, shrimp paste, kaffir lime peel, modified tapioca starch, acidity regulator.
Carbs per 100g: 4.0g
Most recipes only use one or two tables spoons which would be less than 50g in the whole dish so that equates to 2g of carbs in the whole dish. You will probably have to add coconut milk or cream as per recipe instructions.
