Green Thai curry paste

Main Serves 4 10 min
A powerful hit of sweet and sour, heat and salt, this can be kept in the fridge for a few days or frozen in small batches and defrosted as needed. Use about 3 tablespoons of paste for a Thai-style curry for 4 people, adding your choice of meat, fish or veg, with extra chilli, lemongrass and spices to taste, a tin of coconut milk and a little stock if needed to thin. Top with a handful of coriander and Thai basil leaves
