Not keen on buying Green Curry paste. green curry paste is easy to make- takes 5 min. And you can freeze for later to speed things up. 2 lemon grass stalks 1 Garlic clove 3-4 green chilli juice 1 lime 1/4 - 1/2 inch ginger or gangal tbs cumin tbs corriander ground 25g pack corriander tsp salt Just blend it together with a food processor until smooth. This make enough for 2 servings for 2 people half the mixture and freeze the rest. Makes this meal super good!!
