After eating a very delicious garlic chilli chicken curry out on Friday night, last night I made my own version for the first time.
Starting with making a green chilli paste ... I don’t have a small blender so thought I’d try using my spice/coffee grinder and it worked perfectly.
20 or so thin green chillies
a good glug of olive oil
the juice of half a lemon
Take the stalks off the chillies and blend/grind, then add olive oil, a good ground or two of salt and the juice of half a lemon and grind/blend again.
This will keep for a week or so in a jar in the fridge.
I’ll be adding recipes to use the green chilli paste in as I make them!
I did make a garlic chilli chicken curry last night but have a couple of ideas I want to try out with it before sharing the recipe.
