Making your own green curry paste makes a big difference but if you don't. have time, you can use green curry paste from a jar which is sold in most mainstream grocery stores.

Add small amounts of vegetable broth until you have a paste. It is ok if it is a little watery. Remove from food processor and set aside. Do not rinse out food processor.
