Keto Thai Red Curry Paste
Having the basics like a great keto Thai Red Curry Paste recipe can save you so much money and the flavour difference…. oh yes!
It’s no secret that I love a bit of a good curry from any origins. This low carb keto curry paste can be ready in minutes. Make it in bulk and freeze and save money and time later.
All the red curry paste ingredients are easily sourced from the supermarket in fact you could have them all in your pantry now.
Ingredients is a Homemade Thai Red Curry Paste
Let’s have a quick look at the ingredients that go into this simple keto curry recipe.
3 cloves garlic
60g coconut oil or avocado oil
1 tsp grated ginger or galangal
1 tbsp lemongrass, I cheat and buy it in a tube so it is always in my fridge. You can get it from most supermarkets.
2 coriander/cilantro stalks and roots. Scrape the roots with a knife to remove the “dirty” surface of the root and then chop the stems and stalk. Reserve the leaves to serve with a keto Thai red curry.
3 kaffir lime leaves. If unavailable substitute zest of half a lime.
Spices. Coriander, paprika, salt and pepper.
Dried Chillies. Use what you can find. I always have plenty around due to growing so many. If you don’t like hot deseed the chillies or reduce the amount and add some capsicum/bell pepper.
Making Keto Thai Red Curry Paste
I have included both a conventional and Thermomix® Red Curry Paste recipe method. To be honest you can mix it by hand, with a stick mixer, food processor or the methods in the recipe card. Just mix until you have a smooth curry paste.
This recipe can be doubled, tripled or made in bulk. It can also easily be stored in the fridge and or the freezer. I love to freeze in individual portions then store in a ziplock bag in the freezer for when I need to use it.
Always be careful working with chillies to not scratch your eyes or face before washing your hands. Trust me! I have had a few teary moments in the kitchen.
