How to make your homemade curry paste

Hello greedy friends!

Why don't you make your own-home curry paste?

Curry paste, which is mainly used in Thailand serves as the basis for preparing traditional sauces and dishes.

Yellow curry paste is the sweetest curry paste. It is between the north and the center of Thailand that the yellow curry is mainly cooked.

Red curry paste is part of the spicy pasta category. This is also the recipe that was made below

With the non-negligible presence of chilli, it is better to be a lover of spicy dishes

Green curry is the best known but also the most spicy thai curry. It is mainly consumed in the south of the country.

Thai curry therefore consists of spices and condiments such as lemongrass, galanga, garlic or chilli that are ground to obtain a paste.

So to go back to my curry paste, I just let my senses, my pleasures and my desires speak.

Did you know that?

Capsaicin is the chemical in chillies that causes the burning sensation of eating a chilli pepper.

Some peppers contain more capsaicin than others, their strength is determined by classifying them on the scoville scale.

Before handling a chilli, I advise you to put on gloves. Do not rub your eyes or mouth after preparing a chilli, it burns. Well I think you'll only make the mistake once

If you do, in spite of all this, drink milk, preferably whole, oil or .. alcohol in moderation of course lol. No it's not a joke

Capsaicin is a fat-soluble molecule, i.e. it dissolves in fat bodies. as well as alcohol. This is why drinking water has no effect on the burning sensation!
