If you have a good Asian market in Manchester you should be able to find most of the ingredients there.

 

If you can't find what you need, I would look for Mae Ploy brand curry pastes from Thailand. They come in little cans or in larger, plastic tubs. There are probably a dozen varieties. I've used several of them and always been satisfied. They make a really quick meal, once you've chopped the vegetables and protein.  Again, you will probably need to find an Asian market.

 

Which Manchester are we talking about, by the way?

hi terry

 

thanks for the reply.  i meant Manchester, England.  Didn't realise, but i guess this is a US based forum.

i will have a look for those pastes, maybe they are available here

you should be able to find most ingredients in the UK.

If you can't find them in the shops (like the indian shops or tesco, sainsbury etc) then try online.

Amazon.co.uk definitely has some of them.

You might do better at a Chinese market. At least here in the US the Chinese markets are more likely to have S.E. Asian ingredients than the Indian markets are. A quick Google search of "Asian Grocers in Manchester UK" turns up several. If you have a Thai restaurant you like in the area, I'd ask them where to shop, too. 

 

 

Or, better still--a Google search of "thai grocer in Manchester UK" turns up Kim's Thai Food Store at 46 George Street, in Chinatown.

Happy Shopping!
