  Amount  Measure       Ingredient — Preparation Method
——–  ————  ——————————–
  20                    dried hot chiles
  1         tablespoon  coriander seed
  1           teaspoon  cumin seed
  10                    peppercorns
  3             stalks  lemon grass
     1/4           cup  fresh cilantro
     1/4           cup  shallots
  2        tablespoons  fresh garlic — chopped
  1         tablespoon  fresh ginger — chopped
  1           teaspoon  lime peel
  1           teaspoon  salt

Crumble the chilies into a bowl, cover with warm water, and set aside to soften for 20 minutes.

In a small skillet over medium heat, dry-fry the coriander seeds unthis they darken a shade or two, shaking the pan or stirring often, 2-3 minutes.  Tip out onto a saucer.  Toast the cumin seed the same way, until they darken, 1-2 minutes.  Add to the saucer along with the peppercorns.  Grind the three spices together.

To prepare the lemon grass, trim away and discard any root section, and cut the top portion off, leaving about 6 inches.  Remove any wilted leaves, and finely chop the stalks.

Drain the chilis, add along with all other ingredients in a food processor or blender.  Process until a smooth paste is formed, adding water as needed and scraping down  the sides of the bowl frequently.  Place in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to one month, or freeze.
