Red Curry Paste

The ready made red curry paste found in stores is not vegetarian friendly. Shrimp paste or fish paste is one of the main ingredients in red curry paste. So I make my own vegetarian red curry paste from a recipe I found online.


1 Tbs cilantro roots
1 Tbs coriander seeds, soaked in water and drained
1/2 tsp cumin seeds,soaked in water and drained
4-5 dried red chili, soaked in water and drained
1 1/2 Tbs galangal
1/4 C garlic, peeled
3-4 Tbs lemongrass, sliced
1/2 tsp peppercorn,soaked in water and drained
2 Tbs salt
1/2 C shallots,peeled
1 Tbs Kaffir lime zest

Place all the ingredients in a food processor and make a paste or use a mortar.
This red curry paste can be used in making Thai Curry.
This curry paste will stay fresh for a couple weeks in the refrigerator and for a year in the freezer.
