Recipe for Nam Prik Kaeng Matsaman (Massaman Curry Paste)


3 dried chilies
3 tablespoon chopped shallots
2 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 teaspoon chopped galangal
1 1/4 tablespoon chopped lemon grass
2 cloves
1 tablespoon coriander seeds
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
5 peppercorns
1 teaspoon shrimp paste
1 teaspoon salt


Soak dried chilies in hot water for 15 minutes and deseed. In a wok over low heat put the shallots, garlic, galangal, lemon grass, cloves, coriander seeds, cumin seeds and dry fry for about 5 minutes, then grind into a powder (with mortar and pestle). Into a blender, put the rest of the ingredients except the shrimp paste and blend to mix well. Add the shallot-garlic-galangal-lemon grass-clove-coriander seed-cumin seed mixture and the shrimp paste and blend again to obtain 1/2 cup of a fine-textured paste. This can be stored in a glass jar in the refrigerator for about 3-4 months.
