Red curry paste

What to do on a quiet Saturday afternoon with time on your hands? One idea could be to make your own red thai curry paste to store in the freezer. Once you have learnt how to make curry paste on your own, you wont go back to store bought again.

1 onion sliced
5 cloves garlic
2 lemongrass stalks
6 chilli padis
6 dried red chilli
1 tbs coriander root
skin of 1/2 a lime
1 thumb sized galangal
1 tbs coriander seeds
1 tbs cumin seeds
1 tsp shrimp paste

1. Blitz all the ingredients with a bit of water in a blender.
2. Can be used for red curry or to make Thai peanut sauce.
