Homemade Thai Red Curry Paste

This recipe is very simple and required few ingredients. Traditionally, Thai curry paste calls shrimp paste, but I have made this Vegan/vegetarian.


Homemade Thai Red Curry Paste

Traditionally Thai dried chilies are used, but I have used Medium spicy Mexican Dried Red Chilies. Feel free to use any Dried red chilies. This curry paste is loaded with Lemon Grass, Galangal, Garlic, Small onions/shallots, Lime Zest and some spices. If you couldn’t find Galangal, you may use ginger. Do not get disappointed if you are unable to find authentic ingredients.

Traditionally, Kafir Lime leaves and rinds are used to make this curry pest. But I couldn’t find it, so I have used Lime zest.

After I made this curry paste, I used it to make Vegan Thai Curry Noodle Soup which was a hit in my home.

If you are not using this right away, pour the paste into the ice cube, Just like I did for my Bombay sandwich chutney, Mint and coriander chutney and Ginger-chili paste, freeze and store the curry paste cubes in the airtight container or Ziploc bags for easy use. Simply remove a few cubes from the freezer to thaw and you have fresh, homemade Thai Red Curry Paste ready to use in any dish.

  3. Then add all the ingredients one by one including chili and smashed it up. Add salt and mix well.

Recipe Notes

I made this in mortar and pestle, you may make this in the blender too.

Use regular onion if you don't have shallots.

You can use ginger if you couldn't find galangal. 

If you are able to find Kafir Lime (Rinds) or leaves, use the same amount of Line zest that is called for.

      Hi Rachana!!
      I got Mexican Chilies from my local Walmart. You can use any dried red chilies though.
      Galangal, I got it from my local Korean market. As mentioned in the notes, you may use ginger too if you couldn’t find galangal. 🙂
