Weekend again, and I want to bring a twist in my usual curry. Well what better than adding a pinch of Thai base to my Indian curry.
Sharing with you today, a simple Thai Red Curry Paste recipe
Here you go ..
- Soak byadgi or kashmiri dried red chillies in 1/2 cup hot water for 20 minutes. If using regular dried red chillies, remove the seeds before soaking to reduce the spiciness. After 15 -20 minutes drain water and keep the chillies aside
- Prepare lemongrass- cut & discard the root. Peel the outermost layer & chop them into discs
- Peel the outermost rind of a lime. Take care not to peel the white layer underneath the skin, as that will make the curry bitter. We want only the outer thin green layer
- Now take everything into a blender add 3-4 tbsp water and blend until fine
Your Thai red curry paste is ready for use
You can add it to hot oil and add some coconut milk and vegetables/ chicken/ meat to make a sumptious thai curry
Hope you enjoy it!!
Happy Eating :)
