Grind all the green curry paste ingredients until well combined and set aside. Skip this step if you are buying the green curry paste.

Heat 1 tbsp oil and stir fry the curry paste until fragrant. Reduce the heat and gradually add 0.5 cup of the coconut milk, stir until a film of green curry oil surfaces.
