Homemade Green Curry Paste

Green Curry Paste, thats one of the basic ingredients in the Thai cuisine. Most of the people, also in Thailand, use the green curry paste you can buy in Asian supermarkets. But have you ever thought about how easy it is to make your own curry paste? Here we show you how to make your own curry paste. In Thailand the original paste is made with shrimp paste but in our recipe we replaced the shrimp paste with dark soy sauce to get a vegan version. With our homemade version you can make your curry even better.
