Nam Phrik Kaeng Daeng - Red Curry Paste

This curry paste is an integral part of Thai cuisine. It is used as a flavourful base for a whole assortment of curries, fried dishes and marinades.

The video 

Makes - 3-4 TBL

Active time - 30-45 minutes

Total time - 2-3 hours or overnight  

Ingredients 

  • 8 dried Thai red chillies, rehydrated & sliced
  • 3cm galangal, peeled and minced
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves, minced 
  • 3cm lemongrass (white part only), minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2-3 shallots, diced 
  • 3 coriander roots, washed thoroughly & sliced
  • 1 tsp shrimp paste
  • 2-3 TBL vegetable oil (if using a food processor)

Method

  1. To rehydrate the chillies, soak in boiling water for 1-2 hours or cold water overnight 
  2. Ensure all the ingredients are minced or chopped as finely as possible, especially the galangal, lemongrass and lime leaves as they are tough, fibrous ingredients. This will make for lighter work if using a mortar and pestle and will prevent damaging the blades of your food processor or blender.
  3. If you have a really heavy mortar and pestle you can skip chopping the softer ingredients like garlic, shallots and coriander stems.
  4. To make the paste, combine all ingredients in a food processor or mortar and pestle. If using a food processor, add 2-3 TBL of vegetable oil to help pulverise the ingredients.
  5. Pound or blend the ingredients until a thick paste is achieved.


Nam Prik Pla - Thai Fish Sauce Dressing

Nam prik pla is famous Thai condiment that can be used as a dipping sauce or dressing. This recipe is flavour packed and will compliment many street food dishes featured in these lessons. The amount of chilli and garlic can be altered to suit your spice tolerance.

Tod Mun Pla - Red Curry Fish Cakes

These fish cakes are deliciously moreish but simple to prepare. Snapper, barramundi, basa, rockling or monkfish are perfect for options to use in this recipe. If you can't find snake beans, substitute green beans, increasing the amount to 6 or 8.

  • 700ml-1L vegetable oil for frying

To Serve (Optional)

  • 4 TBL nam prik pla* (recipe in previous lesson)

  • coriander sprigs

Method

  1. Place all ingredients (except the vegetable oil) into a food processor. Blend for 2-3 minutes until a smooth, opaque paste forms. Transfer the mixture into a bowl. 
  2. Prepare a large tray lined with baking paper, a bowl of cold water and a spoon. 
  3. Using one hand, scoop up some fish paste into your palm. Bring together the tips of your thumb and index finger and squeeze some the fish paste through. with your other hand, dip the spoon into the water and use it to scrape off a ball of fish paste. Place it on the prepared baking tray.
  4. Repeat this process and portion the fish into 15-20 little balls. 
  5. Moisten your hands with some water and lightly shape the balls into small patty shapes. An easy way to do this is to roll a piece between your hands and gently press together. Repeat until you have shaped all the patties.
  6. Pour the vegetable oil into a saucepan over medium heat and set up paper towels on a plate for draining.
  7. When the oil reaches 160-170C, fry the fish cakes for 2-3 minutes on each side until they puff up and turn golden brown. You may need to do this in batches.
  8. Remove with a slotted spoon or spider and drain on paper towel.
  9. Serve with lettuce, coriander and a nam prik pla* dipping sauce.
