Comment by Paru Karthik
I have started liking this site very much. I am a new joiner to this world of wonderful and colorful delicacies. I used to wander through all kind of dishes, be it Indian, Chinese, American, Thai. Thai green curry and red curry have always been the favorite of my husband. I have searched many Thai sites, but everywhere I could see the use of fish sauce and shrimp sauce. We are vegetarians, so we wanted to try without these. In your recipe, you have mention about green paste/red paste. How do we make that paste? Thanks in advance!
Hi Paru, Just skip the fish sauce and add some soy sauce instead. To make the green/red curry paste at home, blend together the following ingredients :- 5-7 thai green chillies (or thai red chillies for red paste), 1 stalk lemongrass, 2" piece of galangal (thai ginger), 2 pearl onions (or shallots), 4 cloves of garlic, handful of cilantro, handful of thai basil, 1/2 tsp of corriander powder, 1/2 tsp of cumin powder, salt to taste, 2 tblsp of oil and lemon juice.
Since it is little difficult to find some of the ingredients which are not typically of indian cuisine, I usually go for store bought paste. You can find it in Asian stores or International markets.
