Don't let the colour fool you, a green curry can be devastatingly hot if prepared the traditional way. For less heat, discard the chilli seeds.
Remove the stems and roughly chop the chillies. Put into an electric blender with all of the other ingredients and blend to a smooth paste. Add a Tbls of extra oil or a little water, if necessary, to facilitate blending and store as you would the red curry paste.
