I love making my own curry pastes for my favourite Thai curries. Yellow Curry Paste is milder than Red or Green Curry Paste because it contains less chillies. Curry powder and turmeric make the paste yellow. Different to the Red and Green Curry Paste it also contains cinnamon but no coriander roots. This paste keeps for two weeks in the fridge but it also freezes well. Just wrap some of the paste (say 2-3 tablespoons) in tinfoil, label, and freeze. This way, you will always have curry paste and it can even be used frozen (well, that's at least what I sometimes do). The recipe comes from Madhur Jaffreys Ultimate Curry Bible and she got it from the Grand Hyatt Erawan in Bangkok. This paste is enough for two dishes of pork, beef, chicken, prawns, squid, fish, crabs, lobster meat or hard-boiled eggs. For a Red Curry Paste see recipe #133926.
