- 1 stalk Lemongrass minced

- 1 thumb size Galangal grated

- ½ teaspoon Ground coriander
- 1 teaspoon Shrimp paste
- 8 Kaffir Lime Leaves torn into pieces

- 4 tablespoon Coconut milk

In a blender, process all the ingredients well to form a fragrant smooth paste.
Once done, take it out from the blender and adjust the seasoning by tasting.
If you want more heat, then add more chilies.
Your curry paste is ready to be used. Even you can bottle up and keep in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
It’s an aromatic homemade base, perfect for seasoning your curries. Even you can use in soups and marinates. I personally love it with prawn and chicken so when I make it, I make in tons and freeze half for later.
