Notes

Freezes well
Modify the spice by adding add up to 4 additional serranos or swapping the serranos for hotter Thai chilis, depending on how hot you like your food. 1 serrano pepper creates a very mild sauce. Also works well with deseeded habanero. 
For a vegan version, use coconut aminos instead of fish sauce. Fish sauce is salty so you may need to add a little extra salt to even out the flavor. Salt to taste.
Coriander is the seed of the cilantro plant. Use bolted cilantro, cilantro that has gone to seed, for this curry paste. If you don't have that, use additional ground coriander (about an extra 2 tsp)
