A gluten free keto green curry paste that is super simple and absolutely delicious to make

This keto Green Curry Paste is a fabulously easy recipe, that you can add more ingredients to make your own signature green curry blend.

Once you have made it, you can store it in the fridge for up to 3 months.  If you don’t think you will  use it all by then, then simply pour it into a ice cube tray, and freeze, then pop your frozen cubes in a ziplock bag and blitz a cube or two when you want to make a curry.

So easy, so tasty, and so much cheaper than buying a green curry paste from the super market and you know what is in it!

How To Make Green Curry Paste

Making a green curry paste isn’t rocket science that is for sure. It is simply done in 3 easy steps.

  1. Dry fry the spices so you release the oil and fragrance
  2. Add remaining ingredients and blend or pound in a mortar and pestle until you have a smooth paste.
  3. Use in your favourite recipes.

  1. Hi Megan
    The Thai green curry paste recipe looks amazing
    I had a few questions in line with the measurement of ingredients and the macros
    I need total calories and total carbs – the one you have mentioned are net carbs or total carbs?

    Shallots – 2 means 2 medium or 2 cups chopped shallots?
    Green chillies – same question

    Thank you in advance

    1. Ho Farzana, just 2 only when a gram or cup is not listed. The recipe also includes both total and net carbs.
