To make 3-4 tablespoons of green curry paste, we need:


  • 16 green (piri-piri) chilli-peppers, chopped
  • 2 branches lemon grass, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 3 scallions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon ginger root, grated
  • 1 tablespoon coriander seed
  • 1 tablespoon caraway-seed
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 1 tablespoon nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon trassi
  • 3 tablespoons oil


  1. Grind the green chilli-peppers, garlic, lemon grass and scallions in a mortar.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients except for the oil and keep grinding to a fluid paste.
  3. Now add the oil.
  4. Alternatively, add all ingredients to a mini food-processor or blender and process until smooth. Thin with water or oil as necessary.
  5. Save in an airtight pot in the refrigerator for storage (lasts 1 month).
