Thai Cooking Class: Green Curry Paste

In the cooking class that I took, we made massaman curry, which is a popular curry, but it’s not my favourite. I went along with that choice because that’s what the other guest who took the class at the same time as I did had chosen. Really, I much prefer green curry. It’s actually pretty simple to make green curry paste. You need most of the same ingredients as for massaman curry (lemongrass, galangal, shallot, garlic, kaffir lime skin, finger root, and turmeric). Add to this a handful of sweet basil and about 10 small green chilies. Crush in mortar and pestle to form a paste and voila! you’re ready to make curry.
