My grandmother made red curry paste from scratch by using a mortar and pestle. She would sit on the kitchen floor and whip up a batch of curry with a beautiful hue of red. Today whenever I use the same mortar and pestle, I think of the happy memories of cooking with my grandmother.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 3 stalks lemongrass, chopped (bottom only not the green leaves)
  • 4 tablespoons galangal, chopped
  • zest of one kaffir lime
  • 3 kaffir lime leaves, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup garlic chopped
  • 16 dried Thai chili peppers
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon shrimp paste
  • 3 tablespoons shallots, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons coriander seeds, crushed
  • 1/2 tablespoon white peppercorns

Recipe Steps:

  • Using a mortar and pestle, pound the ingredients until it forms into a smooth red curry paste. If you are using a food processor or blender, you may need to add 2 tablespoons of water.

Serving Size: 1 1/4 cup
Preparation Time: 30 minutes
