Fresh Thai Green Curry Paste.... BTW the photo isn't mine...
  Sliced jalapeno chili peppers 2
  Minced garlic 5 Clove (25 gm)
  Minced ginger 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Chopped shallot 3 Tablespoon
  Minced fresh lemon grass 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Chopped cilantro 2 Tablespoon
  Ground coriander 1 Tablespoon
  Ground cumin 1 Teaspoon
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste
  Minced lime zest 2 Teaspoon
  Peanut oil 1 Tablespoon
  Fish sauce 2 Tablespoon
  Light brown sugar 2 Tablespoon
  Diced serrano chile peppers 7

In a small blender add all the ingredients (leave out the last two). Start by pulsing 10-12 times until you get a uniform consistency. Blend on high for 3 minutes - will be mostly smooth. Will produce about a cup of the paste - That will make 2 curry dishes...

The best way to cook the curry in my opinion is to fry it in coconut milk fat. Skim off the thick cream from two cans of coconut milk (You'll get about a cup) and use that for the frying medium... Add both the coconut cream and the curry paste in a large sauce pan and bring to a boil while whisking - it will ball up then you will see the oil come out - add the rest of the coconut milk - add the fish sauce and light brown sugar - mix well and you're on your way...
