Thai Holy Basil - Phad Kapraow PasteAdd to cartTemporarily Out of Stock
This is a relatively new product, Mae Pranom's awesome version of the popular holy basil paste sold by Lobo. Also similar to Por Kwan chile paste with holy basil.
Ingredients include plenty of chilli pepper, so the result will always lead with spicy flavor but it doesn't overwhelm. Nice balance of chilli and basil.
See picture below of the extremely delicious dish we prepared using sliced beef. Here's how we did it:
1/ In a pan place two tablespoons vegetable oil
2/ Add crushed garlic and a bit of yellow onion
3/ Add sliced beef, about 1 pound, we used an inexpesive roast beef and sliced it fairly thin. Stir fry for about a minute.
4/ Add about one heaping tablespoon Phad Kapraow Paste followed by about 1 teaspoon sugar
5/ Serve on a plate topped with a bit of fresh cilantro and sliced green onion. Serve with freshly steamed Thai jasmine rice.
Feel free to use with other meat or vegetables of your choice.
Ingredients: vegetable oil, chile, seasoning sauce, holy basil leaves, garlic.
Product of Thailand.
Jeff, Lansing MI. I would like to thank you for continually improving your selection of products. More and more, you're offering items of much higher quality than I can find in any of my local markets. For instance, the Mae Pranom Pad Grapao Paste I recently bought from you is far superior to other 'instant grapao' items, at a better price. It's an item i haven't found anywhere from here to Chicago - so today i purchased more to keep as back-up, along with other Mae Pranom items and some of my favorite fish sauce, oyster sauce etc. I also use your recipe section all the time. Thank you and keep up the good work!
Patrick, Bainbridge Island WA. Due to your recommendations I have become addicted to everything Mae Pranom makes. Their holy basil paste is incredible. I smear it on halved hard boiled eggs for lunch. The yellow label Prik Pao is wonderful! Hot and sweet with great flavor depth from the shrimp paste. I use your large granite mortar and pestle all the time now. If you are ever in Ballard and looking for some excellent Thai food definitely try Pestle Rock on NW market St. It is Northern Isan Thai and fantastic. Thank you for making these products easily available.
