  • If you feel like, you can taste the curry and personalize it according to your taste by adjusting the spices. Remember, this is not cooked, so it is going to taste little strong. Now you can use this curry past in your dish or you can store it for future use, like I do.

Above quantity of ingredients will be enough to make curry paste for 3 - 4 batches for a family of four. Most of the Thai curry pastes available in stores use fish sauce or shrimp paste as one of the ingredients. You are welcome to use it also, if you prefer. I have not used it to keep the dish vegetarian.
