skinnymixer's Thai Red Curry Paste

One of my favourite Skinnymixer’s has been nagging me for months to make a Thai Red Curry, and I finally tried my hand at it.

Here is the paste recipe, which will make enough paste for 4 curries – but you can also use it to marinate chicken to grill or add to soups for a Thai twist. Enjoy!
