Recipe notes

Freeze the excess curry paste in an ice cube maker and cover with a bag and it will stay good for months. you can then make a green curry in 20 mins next time. When I make a paste I usually triple the amounts so I make a load and freeze it.

It may look very white while your cooking it, don't worry it magically turns green at the end!

Coriander roots what are they?
The roots of a bunch of coriander herb. When you are buying coriander herb, try to buy with the roots on. chop off the roots and freeze them until you make your next paste. Note sometimes I have to make a paste without this ingredient and it doesn't make much difference.

I use homemade stock, you can use cubes or whatever but then you need to be careful and use less fish sauce. Make sure your fish sauce is still within its best before date, if it has gone off its really rank!
