My family loved this dish and it tasted like I called out for Thai take-out. What made it even more fantastic was I controlled the amount of oil and ingredients in the dish and it cost to feed a family of four what one dish from a restaurant would cost. This is a real winner when it comes to cooking Thai food at home.
6-8 dry red chilies (softened in a 1/4 cup of warm water)
1 small onion (red, white or scallion) coarsely chopped
2 Thai chilies
3-4 cloves of garlic coarsely chopped
2 inch piece of ginger coarsely chopped
1 stalk of lemon grass (the inner lower section) coarsely chopped
lime rind (use a vegetable peeler and gently peel just the top green layer)
4 Tbs of fish sauce (this is the salt for the entire dish)
2 Tbs of paprika
1 tsp of cumin
1/2 tsp turmeric
Blend in all the above ingredients (including the water that you soaked the red chiles) in a blender or some sort of liquidizer until it forms a paste.
