Ingredients is a Homemade Thai Red Curry Paste

Let’s have a quick look at the ingredients that go into this simple keto curry recipe.

100g onions

3 cloves garlic

60g coconut oil or avocado oil

1 tsp grated ginger or galangal 

1 tbsp lemongrass, I cheat and buy it in a tube so it is always in my fridge. You can get it from most supermarkets.

2 coriander/cilantro stalks and roots. Scrape the roots with a knife to remove the “dirty” surface of the root and then chop the stems and stalk. Reserve the leaves to serve with a keto Thai red curry.

3 kaffir lime leaves. If unavailable substitute zest of half a lime.

Spices. Coriander, paprika, salt and pepper.

Dried Chillies. Use what you can find. I always have plenty around due to growing so many. If you don’t like hot deseed the chillies or reduce the amount and add some capsicum/bell pepper.

Making Keto Thai Red Curry Paste

I have included both a conventional and Thermomix® Red Curry Paste recipe method. To be honest you can mix it by hand, with a stick mixer, food processor or the methods in the recipe card. Just mix until you have a smooth curry paste. 

This recipe can be doubled, tripled or made in bulk. It can also easily be stored in the fridge and or the freezer. I love to freeze in individual portions then store in a ziplock bag in the freezer for when I need to use it.

Always be careful working with chillies to not scratch your eyes or face before washing your hands. Trust me! I have had a few teary moments in the kitchen.
