Thai Red Curry Paste

Hope you all are having very good weekend. My day went very fast in my way. Just before prepared and finished eating tomato cheese pizza. It came out perfectly for the 4th time and still I can sense the aroma of oregano in my entire house. I don't know the reason behind it but yeast baking always makes me happy and it doubles when I see outcome. This happy mood made me to sit and post some recipe in my blog even in this week end.

Searched few old recipes from my drafts and found a simple Thai red curry paste. I adapted this recipe  from US Masala. Also, I am tagging this post under how-to's or Basics since I haven't posted anything under that category for long time. Now you go ahead to see how to prepare Thai red curry paste.
Basic Information:
Preparation Time: <10 minutes
Makes: 1/4 cup


Shallots / Small Onions - 2 nos
Garlic cloves - 4 nos, big in size
Lemon grass - 1 stack
Galangal / Ginger - 1 inch length
Cumin seeds  - 1 teaspoon
Coriander seeds - 1 teaspoon
Black peppercorns- 1/4  teaspoon
Rinds of one lemon - 1 tablespoon
Dry red chilli - 7-8, adjust as per your taste or based on the spiciness of the chilli
Coriander roots - 3 nos

1) Remove the seeds from dry red chillies. Soak it in 1/4 cup of hot water for 10-15 minutes.
2) Drain the water and add the soaked chillies along with other ingredients in a mixer/blender and make a smooth paste of it by adding small quantity of water.
3) Keep refrigerated until you use it.
