Thai Green Curry Paste – Chochaba pre made this for you

This makes about 120g of paste.  This is certainly enough to make two curries.  Chorchaba’s tip is to cook it off in a little vegetable oil, put it in a sterile jar and it will keep for 3 months.

Ingredients – Serves 4

  • – 20 green chilli
  • – 1 tsp lemon grass
  • – 1 tsp coriander root
  • – 1 tsp galangal
  • – 1 tablespoon shallot
  • – 8 garlic cloves
  • – 1 tsp coriander powder
  • – ½ tsp kaffir lime leaves
  • – 1 tsp cumin powder
  • – ½ tsp coriander root
  • – 1 tsp salt
  • – 1 tsp shrimp paste or miso paste (V)


  1. 1. Add the chilli, lemon grass, coriander root and galangal to the food mixer or nutribullet. 
  2. 2. Then add garlic and shallots. Blend until very smooth
  3. 3. Add coriander powder cumin powder shrimp past and salt. Blend for the third time until all mixed to a very smooth paste.

TIP: You can actually add the stage 3 ingredients to the mortar and pestle and blend manually rather than returning to the blender which will save a bit of mess.

Vegetable stir fry

Mushroom, Carrot, Chineses leaf, Mange Tout, beansprouts – Toss all in a hot pan with a little oil for 3-4 mins

Coconut Rice – an alternative to stir fry to try at home

Ingredients  – Serves 4 to 6

  • 1 can coconut milk (400ml)
  • 400 ml water
  • Salt – 1 tablespoon
  • Sugar – 3 tablespoon
  • Pandan Leaf or lemon grass or ginger
  • Rice – 450g Thai Jasmine Rice


  1. Save half the coconut milk, and pour the remaining milk into a measuring jug.  Dilute the coconut milk with water so you have 600ml total.
  2. Put the diluted milk into a pan with the sugar, salt and pandan leaf, stir to dissolve the sugar then bring to the boil.  If you don’t dissolve the sugar, it will burn on the bottom.
  3. While coming to boil, rinse the rice in cold water in a sieve.
  4. Add the rice to the boiling milk, cover with lid and reduce temperature to low.
  5. After 5 minutes add the set aside coconut milk.
  6. Stir occasionally, you don’t want it to stick to the bottom – it will take about 15 minutes to cook and the rice will be soft and dry.  Remove from heat and allow to rest.
