    Sharon123's Note:

    From Darlene Schmidt,Your Guide to Thai Food. Here's what she says,"This Thai red curry paste recipe is red hot! Check your spice-o-meter when preparing this paste, adding less fresh chili if you prefer milder dishes. Red curry paste makes for excellent Thai curry, including curry chicken and seafood curries, vegetarian curries, or noodles." I have made some slight changes. Enjoy!

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    batch

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and process well.
    2. 2
      To use immediately, fry the paste in some oil to release flavors before adding meat, tofu or wheat gluten, or vegetables.
    3. 3
      Add more coconut milk, as desired. Include the leftover pieces of lemongrass(if using) in your cooking pot - this will add more flavor to the curry.
    4. 4
      Before serving, always do a taste test. If not salty enough, add more fish sauce (or vegetarian fish sauce, or soy sauce). If too salty, add a squeeze of lime juice. If too sour, add a little more sugar. If too spicy, add more coconut milk or a little plain yogurt.
    5. 5
      When serving, sprinkle fresh coriander and/or ground nuts over the curry.
    6. 6
      Store paste in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks (or longer - the spices will help to preserve it).

      Reviewed for ZWT9 - easy to make and really did taste as good as my regular bought Thai red curry paste. Asian style Chilli powder is super hot - being made from dried red chillies---for anyone wanted to make a less hot curry paste, I would cut back on this ingredient

      This was excellent and I was able to make it with ingredients on hand. I used the recipe to make Thai Red Curry Chicken and Eggplant (Aubergine).
