Let’s learn how to make vegan curry paste! This is an easy recipe, not authentic, mild, but it does the job. You can make it in 5 minutes with some onions, ginger, garlic and dried spices.
Basically, it’s the perfect solution, when you want to eat curry, but forgot to buy curry paste and the fresh produce in your house is invisible. Because you need to go grocery shopping and all you have is frozen peas and some pantry food.
For those cases, you need to have the recipe for this small batch, mild easy curry paste. There’s no shrimp paste or anything fancy, the paste is vegan and it works pretty well.
Here are the ingredients!
Easy Red Curry Paste Ingredients

How To Make The Vegan Curry Paste
To make the curry paste, all you really need to do is blend the raw ingredients and then mix them with the dry spices.
Yes, 5 minutes!
How To Use It
Well, in curries! I used one batch two or three times to make chickpea curry with cashew milk (since I didn’t have coconut milk) and you can also use it to spice up soups or any type of stews. It will go really well with lentils or tofu as well.
I highly recommend combining the curry paste with some lemon grass or lime leaves, because these help to lighten things up.
Make sure to store in a small airtight container (a small recycled jar did it for me) in the fridge and use up within 3 days. Otherwise, you can also freeze it for longer.
