Since my darling hubby bought me the most amazing blender ever, i have made it a mission to make my cooking pastes from scratch and not use any premixes. I am so proud that i made the most amazing green curry from the freshest ingredients available! It’s spicy, tangy and has a unique flacour that is hard to describe. Ben and I love it so so much! It was a perfect match to some steamed basmati rice and a chai poh omelette.
