Red Chicken Curry
( SERVES 4 )
Homemade curry pastes can last up to four days in the fridge if covered. Leftover paste can be frozen for up to a month in zip-lock plastic bags, although it will lose some vibrancy of flavour. Make sure you flatten the bag to remove all the air and label with the date.
