Another of the recipes from my sister, who went on a cooking class in Thailand. If you can't find galangal you can substitute ginger, for the coriander root you can substitute the stems.
- Soak dried chillis in hot water for 15 minutes.
- While the chillis are soaking, put garlic, galangal, lemongrass, lime peel & coriander root into a mortar (or electric grinder) & pound well.
- Put shallot, red chillies & shrimp paste into mortar & pound until smooth (and there are no lumps).
