Laksa Paste
Homemade laksa paste is fragrant and tasty

This fragrant, tasty laksa paste can be made at home using fresh ingredients. I use a mortar and pestle to grind the ingredients into a paste, but a blender will work just as well. This recipe is gluten and lactose free and can be altered for vegetarian and low FODMAP dietary requirements without comprising flavour.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
Serves: 1 cup

Ingredients
1 tbsp shrimp paste (exclude for vegetarian option and add soy sauce)
1 tbsp dried shrimp (exclude for vegetarian option)
2 dried red chilli
1 tsp coriander seeds
1 tsp turmeric
1/4 cup macadamias, lightly roasted
2 tbsp coriander root and stem, finely cut
4 birdseye chilli
1 lemongrass, white fleshy stem
2 tsp fresh galangal, finely grated (can substitute with ginger)
4 cloves garlic, crushed (exclude for low FODMAP)
1 lime, juiced and finely zested
1 medium brown onion, diced (exclude for low FODMAP)

Method
Heat a fry pan on medium heat, add the shrimp paste, dried red chilli and shrimp, coriander seeds and turmeric. Stir for 1-2 minutes until aromatic. Take off the heat and set aside to cool.
Finely cut the Birdseye chilli, coriander root and stem, white section of the lemongrass and finely grate the galangal and the zest of a lime. Set aside.
Add the macadamias, shrimp paste, dried red chilli and shrimp, coriander seeds and turmeric into a mortar and pestle and grind for 1 minute.

Shrimp paste, dried shrimp and red chillies can be found in most supermarkets or Asian grocers.
