Chang Mai curry paste


  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 dried chillies
  • 2 tblsp ginger
  • 10g lemongrass
  • 2 tblsp onion or shallot
  • 1 tsp shrimp paste
  • 1 tsp turmeric


This is pretty simple, put all the ingredients into a liquidiser or a pestle and mortar to combine them. To make it easier add a little water. This will make around 4 – 5 tablespoons of paste. I sometimes add more chillies and also coriander to change the flavour. See also Panaeng curry paste for a simliarly versatile Thai paste
