Making green curry paste requires fresh green chilies. The Green Anaheim pepper (Prik Noom or Green Chili) is commonly used in Thailand as it’s sweet, but not too spicy. You can also use green bell pepper, jalapeño or green cayenne pepper. If you don’t like coriander or cilantro, use 4-5 sweet Thai basil leaves to make a strong, green colored paste.
- Combine all ingredients in a mortar and pound with a pestle until the texture is smooth and fine.
