Recipe: Yellow Thai curry paste

Sauces, dressings and dips with herbs
February 07, 2010

Lemon grassWith my harvested lemon grass, I made the famous Thai Chicken Soup and this homemade thai curry paste.

I prepare often the thai curry paste, creating many variations. I enjoyed this one, with lemon and ginger.

Hot LemonI used Hot Lemon chilies because they're yellow, but also because they have a lemony aroma. If you don't have these chilies use any yellow chili, but not the ones with a strong pepper aroma.
