Does anyone know of a mild thai curry paste that is jarred and can be purchased (in LA or online)? I am trying to introduce my preschooler to thai food, but he finds the stuff I currently use (Thai Kitchen brand, red or green) too spicy, even if I only use about 1/2 tsp per can of coconut milk. If I reduce the amount any more, it won't taste like curry at all.
I am also looking for domestic brands, because he is allergic to peanuts (this is why we don't take him out for thai), and imported brands don't have as many restrictions on ingredient labelling.
Are there other thai dishes (not desserts) that have escaped my mind that are on the milder side (from a 4 year old's perspective).
