I make this up and freeze as ice cube stock blocks to pull out as required. Another great one to whip up on a Sunday for the weeks dinners. This is super tasty too…though can smell a bit strange at first due to the fish sauce. A favourite with my friends that want to purchase the cubes from me whenever they try!

Ingredients :

6 medium chilies
4 spring onions
3 fresh coriander roots
2 lemongrass stalks (white only)
3 kaffir lime leaves
1 teaspoon shrimp paste
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 teaspoon ground coriander
2-4 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon fish sauce
20 g olive oil


  1. Put all the ingredients in a food processor and blitz until it forms a paste
  2. Press the mixture into a large ice cube tray and freeze
  3. Use one or 2 cubes a time and just add a can of coconut milk, some vegetables and your protein of choice
