Ingredients

  • 4 shallots, peeled and cut into quarters
  • 1 packet of coriander
  • 1 tsp shrimp paste
  • pepper
  • 7 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2 lemon grass stalks, chopped
  • 4 kaffir lime leaves
  • 4cm piece of ginger, peeled and cut up
  • 3 bird's eye chillies
  • 2 limes
  • peanut oil
  • 1 tin of coconut milk
  • 500 ml chicken stock

Method

Blend together the shallots, the coriander, the shrimp paste, a pinch of pepper, the garlic cloves, the lemon grass, the kaffir lime leaves, the ginger, 3 bird's eye chillies, the juice and zest of 2 limes and a lug of peanut oil. This should be very smoothly blended, and will be your curry paste.
