“This is a recipe I found by Claire Brookman published in Super Food Ideas that I have altered with the addition of birds eye chilies. This addition makes this curry paste very hot. You can reduce the chilies to your liking or if you are brave add to it or use other chilies. I found it works best in a Chicken Tikka Massala but will go with any meats. Marinate your meat of choice for at least 4 hours with half the paste first then make your curry using your favourite recipe that calls for curry paste.”
