Homemade Thai Green Curry Paste



Making curry paste from scratch is well worth the effort and time. You can always adjust the level of spiciness to suit you, and they taste better too. I prefer to make the curry paste in a mortar and pestle as this slowly releases the flavours and aroma. However, If you decide to use a food processor, then make sure to grind the roasted spices separately until you have a fine powder before adding to the rest of the ingredients.
