Author's Notes

Yields 1 cup.

The main purpose of the water is to help the blender or food processor blend the ingredients. As soon as the curry paste is blended evenly, stop adding water.

It will keep in the fridge in an airtight container for a week, or in the freezer for about 6 months. If freezing, I recommend using ice cube trays. Once frozen, you can store it in a ziplock bag and use it as needed.
