Directions
1.
Place the green chillies, shallots, garlic, galangal, lemongrass, coriander and cumin powder, shrimp paste, fresh coriander, white pepper, fish sauce, brown sugar and lime juice in a food processor blend to a paste. If necessary, add a few drops of coconut milk. Refrigerate paste for 30 mins.

Add the red pepper, courgette and lime leaves, and simmer for another 2-3 mins.
6.
Taste and if more salt is needed add fish sauce. If too salty add sugar and lime juice, if too spicy add coconut milk.
7.
Serve with jasmine rice and garnish with fresh basil.
