Homemade Tom Yam Paste

Homemade Tom Yam Paste


This is a homemade tom yam paste that I made for tonite's Tom Yam Fried Beehoon..

This is an easy way to make your own tom yam paste as long as you have all the ingredients handy...here you go...

Ingredients :
2 stalks lemongrass (cut into small pieces)
4 kaffir lime leaves (cut into small pieces)
5 shallots
2 cloves garlic
1/2 tbsp taucu
2 tbsp or more dry chilli paste (as desired)
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp tamarind water
2 tbsp fish sauce
1 tbsp dry prawns
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar

Put all the above mentioned ingredients in a food processor and blend to make a smooth paste. Then heat a wok with some olive oil and fry the ingredients till fragrants and keep aside. You can even make in a bigger batch and refigerate once it's cool.

For those who want a vegetarian version, do not add the dry prawns and fish sauce.
This paste is good for Fried Beehoon, Fried rice or Seafood Soup
