I have heard of people using miso paste, which is a Japanese soy bean paste, to give it a savory element. Fry onion and garlic for about 3 minutes until soft. Making southern Thai curry paste is not too difficult, but it is just time consuming and it does take some serious arm energy.
Robert 1 year ago Hey Mark, Being based in Scotland, I am trying to source all the ingredients that I would need to have a go at making this but I am struggling to get access to Kaffir Lime peel. Awesome explanation and because I love southern Thai food so much this was the first paste I made myself, so thanks a million!!
Basically for this recipe, all you just need to do is take all the ingredients mentioned above, and pound them using a mortar and pestle until they become a buttery paste. Though it does take some time and effort, I can assure you, the end result will be nothing short of incredible flavor. Love Thai food thanks for the inspiration.
