Cover the dried chiles with plenty of hot water and keep them submerged under a small plate. Let soak overnight.


The next day, preheat the oven to 450°F (230°C). Place the unpeeled onion on the middle rack of the oven and roast for 1 hour, until the center is soft and nicely caramelized. Let cool, then peel off the skin.


Drain the chiles and squeeze out the excess water. Put the peppercorns, cloves, cinnamon, and cumin seeds in a spice grinder and grind to a fine powder.


Put the chiles, roasted onion, ground spice mixture, ginger, garlic, tamarind pulp, sugar, and vinegar into a food processor and blend to a smooth paste.

Inspired by a recent trip to Thailand and a Thai Cooking Class, i've been inspired to make my own red curry paste. If you have a spare ten minutes I encourage you to make your own, the flavours are so fresh and vibrant and the great thing is that you can tweak the paste to suit your own personal taste.
