Product Featured: Premier™ Hard-Anodized Nonstick 12-Inch Frying Pan


  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp red Thai curry paste (like Maesri)
  • 1 lb. peeled petite carrots (or large carrots cut lengthwise and into 4-inch long pieces)
  • 1/4 tsp coarse salt
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • Cilantro, for garnish
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish


  1. In a frying pan with lid, melt butter over medium heat. Add curry paste and stir into the butter with the back of a wooden spoon or spatula. Bloom the curry paste in butter, stirring constantly for about 1 minute.
  2. Add the carrots and toss in the curry butter. Turn the heat up to medium-high heat and continue to cook carrots until al dente (or longer if you prefer them more tender), about 10 minutes. Cover with a lid, uncover, and stir every few minutes.
  3. Remove the lid. Add salt and brown sugar and stir to combine. Continue to cook the carrots until the brown sugar melts and coats the carrots, 2 to 3 minutes. Taste and add more salt (depending on brand of curry paste) if needed.
  4. Transfer carrots to a serving platter and garnish with torn cilantro and sesame seeds. Serve immediately.
