A homemade curry paste is delicious, and you can also adapt it to your own taste. This yellow mild curry paste can be simply made with a mortar and pestle.
Homemade curry paste is so much more delicious than store-bought ones. If you think it takes much time, you have to try it just ones to see for yourself how easy it actually is. You can adapt it to your own taste, if you like it spicy or mild, you can create it yourself using a mortar and pestle (or small blender).
Peel and coarsely chop the onion and garlic cloves. Peel and finely chop the ginger root, it has to be finer than the onion and garlic so they'll be done at the same time.
Heat a bit of olive oil in a small saucepan and sauté the onion, garlic and ginger for a few minutes. As soon as they're softened enough you can add the ground spices and sauté them briefly.
Transfer everything to the mortar or small blender and create a paste, if it's not smooth enough you can add a bit of sunflower oil.
