Recipe's preparation

    Curry Paste
  1. Add lemongrass, dried chillis, ginger, garlic, corriander root to TM bowl and chop for 10 seconds on speed 7.  Scrape down sides and repeat. 

    Scrape down sides and add onion and chop for 6 seconds speed 6.

    Add remaining ingredients and and mix for 20 seconds on speed 4.  Scrape down sides and repeat for another 20 seconds or until the curry paste has formed a semi smooth paste.



This is a mild curry sauce so if you want it spicier you can add more dried chillis or add in a fresh one as well.This will make 3 curries so I normally weigh the curry paste into 60g portions and freeze in a snaplock bag so the paste is in the freezer ready to go.

Thai Yellow Curry Paste

    Used this for a yellow fish curry. Added a slosh of fish sauce, lime juice and 1/2 Tspn sugar then realised creator's recipe for yellow beef curry says exactly the same. This recipe makes a really great tasting curry sauce base. Thank you.

    This is my go to paste and love not having to purchase the store bought ones now.
    Super easy.
