Thai Green Curry Paste

Thai pastes are one of the essential elements of Thai Cuisine, prepare Thai soup or Thai Curry, Thai stir fry or marinades dishes, Thai pastes plays an important role in these dishes.

The good news is that making your own Thai Green Curry Paste at home is not a tedious job, as long as you have all the ingredients ready. This Thai curry paste can be ready in less than 10 minutes. Get the ingredients, put in a food processor and whizz up till you get a smooth paste. That's it. And let me tell you it is so much better than shop-bought Thai Curry paste, packed with amazing fresh fragrant flavours and ingredients. But, if you have some time on your hand and patience or just need some work out try pounding this paste by hand in mortar and pestle, therapeutic right?

We love Thai food, so obviously I do make my own Thai pastes. Luckily, all the authentic and necessary ingredients are available very easily where I live as there is an oriental grocery store just a stone's throw away from my house. I love to include fresh and original ingredients in my Thai curry pastes. The recipe I have prepared is fast, finger-licking and versatile, you can add in pretty much anything.

10/12 days ago, I was clearing out my fridge and realised that we are out of homemade Thai paste! It's almost time for my daughter to go back to uni, so it's the right time for me to prepare this paste, so I can freeze some for her too and whenever she wants to use it she can use it. This paste can be frozen and stays up to one year.

Recently I prepared coconut and pineapple Thai fried rice, which is now have become our all time favourite and it seems to be doing pretty well with my readers too. I am soon going to post a similarly delicious recipe just like this one prepared with Thai paste, but until then let's see how the Thai Green paste can be made.

Notes:-
As we love spicy food, my this recipe is a spicy kick but if you prefer milder flavours reduce the number of green chillies.

  22. You are so right homemade curry paste is so much better than shop bought. I like to make it in a pestle and mortar so its a bit less uniform but when time is short then the food processor is definitely the way to go.

  27. I love thai food. I really fancy giving this a try. I've only ever used Thai green curry paste that I've bought. I've never heard of galangal before but I'll look it up before just going with ginger. I like trying out new ingredients.
