Yellow Curry Paste

 

INGREDIENTS:

2 Tbs. Dried red chili

1 Shallot

1 clove Garlic

1 slice Galangal ginger

1 Lemongrass

1 slice Kaffir lime rind

1 slice Coriander root

½ tsp. Coriander seeds

½ tsp. Cumin

1 tsp. Yellow curry powder

¼ tsp. Turmeric ginger (peeled & sliced)

¼ tsp. Salt

¼ tsp. Shrimp paste

PREPARATION:
