Storage 2 months Cooks in 30 minutes Difficulty EASY
- 20 dried red chillies
- 3 chopped lemongrass stalks
- 2 chopped shallots
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 1 thumb length piece of turmeric chopped
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- Smash the dried chillies and salt in a pestle and mortar.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and smash together for around 30 minutes or until a nice thick paste is formed.
Alternatively you can blend the ingredients together but the curry paste tastes much better if smashed by hand in a pestle and mortar.
Store in the fridge for up to two months.
