    Years ago I had a fab recipe for curry paste, using ginger, garlic, chillies, coriander, cumin and cardamom pods.
    I'd like to make this again but cannot remember exact quantities, so it will be a bit hit or miss but I'm sure I'll get there.
    This got me thinking does anyone on here have any good recipes for a curry paste?

    for a Penang Curry

    5-10 long chillies
    1 teaspoon of ground coriander
    2 teaspoons ground cumin
    2 cloves of garlic diced
    8 spring onions diced
    2 sticks of lemon grass (sliced thinly)
    75g roasted peanuts
    2-3 tablespoons of oil

    (makes enough for 2 recipes and will keep for up to 3 weeks)

    300-500g of chicken thighs or breasts - diced
    3/4 pack of creamed coconut (or a tin)
    2-4 tablespoons of Penang curry paste (see post 2)
    1 tablespoon of sugar
    1-2 table spoons of soy sauce
    1 lime leaf torn
    1-2 table spoons of oil
    50g green beans/mange tout/corn etc

    to serve
    25g of chopped roasted nuts
    1 fresh chili
    1/4 teaspoon of sugar

    1) placed creamed coconut into large frying pan with pint of cold water, bring to a simmer stir until coconut has dissolved
    2) add Penang paste/sugar/soy/lime leaf
    3) simmer for about 20 mins until mixture has reduced by about 1/3 and thickened
    4) fry chicken in batches, drain on paper towels
    5) add veggies and chicken to curry mixture and cook, uncovered for about 5 mins till veggies cooked
    6) serve by sprinkling on chopped nuts + chili


    Hope that made sense!

    for the paste

    fry coriander and cumin until fragrant
    blend or process chillies and spices with all remaining ingredients to form a paste.
