Thai green curry paste can be stored for almost 15 days. So before making main course, this paste can be made well in advance to save time.
2 -3 small sized chopped onion ( or shallots if available)
1 cup finely chopped corriander (with stems)
5 finely chopped green chillies
3-4 stalks finely chopped tender lemon grass (with stems)
1/2 tspn corriander seeds
1/2 tspn cumin seeds
1/2 tspn lemon zest
4-5 chopped garlic cloves
1/2 inch ginger piece cut into small pieces
1/4 tspn black pepper powder
Salt to taste
Water as required
Take all ingredients in a blender
Blend it into smooth paste
Transfer it into an air-tight container
Store it in refrigerator for almost 15 days
1. Few other ingredients like Soy sauce, brown sugar etc. may be added to the thai green curry paste. But it dilutes it colour, so I have not used it.
2. You may blend it with vegetable oil or coconut milk instead of water.
