  • ½ onion (diced)
  • 3 red chili peppers
  • 1-inch piece galangal , sliced thinly (use ginger as a substitute)
  • 1 stalk lemongrass (trim the top and the hard outer leaves and slice finely. If you can't use this, use the zest of two limes instead)
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha sauce
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp tamari (or soy sauce)
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil


  • Put all the ingredients in the grinder but add just enough oil to keep the blades moving. Add the rest of the oil if needed, to make a fairly smooth paste.
