Once you learn how to make your own curry paste from scratch, you’ll never buy it again. I usually make a double batch, then freeze the rest for the next time I’m in the mood for a Thai curry.


For the Thai green curry paste

  • 10 whole black peppercorns
  • 15 ml coriander seeds
  • 15 ml


  1. To make the curry paste, toast the peppercorns, coriander seeds and cumin seeds in a dry frying pan until fragrant. Place into a pestle and mortar and grind to a fine powder.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and grind to a fine, smooth paste.
  3. To make the curry, heat half the oil in a saucepan over high heat and stir-fry the chicken until browned. Remove
