Kroeung is an umbrella Khmer term that refers to a family of spice and herb pastes. One of the most common is the bright yellow curry paste used as the base of classic dishes like amok and beef curry with fried shallots and peanuts. This all-purpose building block of flavor has been used in stews and with vegetables and meats for centuries.
