I had a last minute need for red curry paste for another recipe. This was great. We used half for what we needed it for and used the rest as a condiment within a few days. I'm definitely making this again. Because it was last minute, I didn't have everything. I absolutely missed out not having lemon grass I wanted that flavor in the finished product after I tasted it. I used dried ground ginger for the galangal and Worcestershire sauce for the shrimp paste, which worked OK and some extra liquid helped it all come together as a paste. I also used a mix of dried cayenne and chili powder instead of soaking and grinding dried chilies.
