Thanks for this! I needed some curry paste and didn't have time to shop for it. Tasted just great - I used already powdered forms of the seasonings and it was just fine.

Just what I was wanting! I was in a hurry so I used pre-ground coriander and cumin but changed nothing else. Loved it! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Excellent! Robust but not overly done. I toasted and ground all the spices. Used 3/4 of the paste for a lamb meatball curry. Can't wait to try it with chicken.
