Here it is courtesy of S and Sister S and Jamie Oliver (fully credited!)  A very unmelancholy recipe.

Green Curry Paste


  • 2 stalks lemongrass
  • 4 spring onions
  • 3 green chillies
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • ginger (thumb – a new body part measure for me)
  • fresh coriander (there can never be enough)
  • teaspoon of coriander seeds
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce

Blend it all together and add groundnut or sesame oil to help it all along.

Was delicious and flavoursome without the chilli masking all the other ingredients.  Use with your favourite green curry recipe.  This served three gannets.  Probably four normal people.
