How to Make Thai Green Curry Paste:

In Thai food, a paste is usually made with different spices, herbs, chilies | pepper and leaves.  This paste is used as a base to create different style sauces to curries.  It is different than a dried spice blend, as the ingredients are fresh, vibrant and when combined together, making an intense paste for other flavors to build off of.  This Thai Green Curry Paste recipe is perfect to use for any recipe that calls for it.  It is better made fresh, but what isn’t used for a recipe can be frozen and used at a later date.  Try my Duck Coconut Green Curry Chili or Thai Green Curry Aioli recipe that uses this paste, building the flavors into their respective dishes.

Instructions
  • In the pitcher of a blender or bowl of a food processor, add the galangal/ginger, cilantro, chilies (remove the seeds if spice is a concern), salt, lemongrass, garlic, beer, coriander, peppercorns, cloves, onion and kaffir leaves (if using). Pulse to begin to break up all the ingredients and increase the speed to high, mixing until a smooth paste forms, about 4 - 5 minutes. Pour this paste into a mason | ball jar and refrigerate for up to three weeks.
  • This paste can also be frozen by filling a clean ice cube tray and placing it in the freezer on a level shelf. Freeze until solid and then remove from the tray, placing the cubes into a labeled freezer bag. The cubes will last for up to six months.
