    Truly a remarkable paste. Beautifully balanced and loaded with flavor. I have tried literally hundreds of pastes and this one is head and shoulders above all of them by a long shot.

    Absolutely delicious! Nearly jumped with joy after I smelled + tasted this paste! It brought me right back to Malaysia — some of my happiest memories. Thank you, Mama Lam!

Traditional Medium Malaysian Curry Paste

If you’re looking for top quality Malaysian curry pastes and hot sauces, Mama Lam has you covered! The whole thing began back in 2014, when Mama Lam and her two daughters were traveling and realized that they preferred Mama Lam’s curry to any others they found. Mama Lam had been missing her favorite bowl of curry noodle soup since she arrived in New York in the 80s, so had crafted her own version of her mother’s curry recipe to help herself feel at home. The result? A perfect curry paste and hot sauce that you can try out for a true taste of Malaysian cuisine too! Let’s focus on the original curry paste – the Traditional Medium Curry Paste. – the medium Malaysian curry paste!

This Will Be Your Go-To Malaysian Traditional Medium Curry Paste From NY

This curry paste has a medium heat or spice level, making it the perfect option for most people. For those who like spicy, this has a nice balance between spice and flavor. We only use natural ingredients in all of our products and can guarantee you won’t be getting any artificial additions to your jar. Our medium Malaysian curry paste combines delicious herbs and spices like chili, coriander, turmeric, gram dhal, curry leaves and black pepper with coconut milk, shallots, garlic, shrimp paste and more to give a unique savory flavor throughout the whole jar. The spice in this curry paste comes from cooking Mama Lam’s Malaysian hot sauce into the paste, which not only adds the heat but an additional layer of savoriness. If you want the curry spicier, we just say add more of the hot sauce!

How To Use Mama Lam’s Medium Malaysian Curry Paste

Unless you’re Malaysian or have grown up around Malaysian cuisine, you may be relatively unfamiliar with how to prepare and cook Malaysian dishes. The good news is that there are now so many free recipes online that you can whip up authentic tasting dishes easily – as long as you have the right, authentic ingredients. Mama Lam’s medium curry paste is extremely easy to use, simplifying the cooking process for you. It’s ready made and can be added to meat, seafood, vegetables and anything else you may be cooking up straight from the jar. It will spruce up and flavor any meal and really give things that authentic Malaysian signature touch. If you like a saucier curry, just add some coconut milk! It will also work well in soups or simply as a dip!


Mama Lam’s Malaysian Traditional Medium Curry Paste comes in two options – a 4 oz jar or an 8 oz jar. The 4 oz jar contains around eight servings and the 8 oz jar contains around sixteen servings. This means there’s a good size jar for anyone – whether you live alone or are cooking for a large family!

Do you prefer the 4 oz or the 8 oz jar?


When you buy Mama Lam’s curry pastes, you know you’re going to get good use out of them. Unlike many jarred pastes, these have a long life on them. Once you open the jar, you can rest assured that it will last for up to twelve months, as long as it’s stored in the refrigerator. Its flavor will last and it will taste just as good eleven months down the line as the day you opened it. We can almost guarantee that you’ll have used it all up within this time frame. This reduces wastage, making Mama Lam’s cost-effective and environmentally friendly too!

It’s important to note that our Medium Malaysian curry paste does contain shrimp and coconut. But if you’re looking for a shellfish free, vegetarian and vegan option, don’t despair. We have expanded our range to include a Vegan Medium Malaysian Curry paste too. It tastes just as good but doesn’t contain any shrimp paste!


You’ll fall in love with Mama Lam’s medium Malaysian curry paste from your first purchase. So, it’s not all too surprising that the majority of our customers want to expand their palette and further explore Malaysian cuisines once they’ve had their first experience with it.
