This paste is the basis for making a moderately spicy green curry. It is super easy to whip up in a blender and tastes much better than store bought. It will last 2 weeks if refrigerated. See my Thai Green Curry recipe for how to use this paste.
Recipes like this green curry are a great way to spice up your weekly dinners while using leftover meat and vegetables. You can make the paste ahead of time and refrigerate for up to a week, or buy a pre-made paste and whip this up in under half an hour.
