Of course you can use bought curry paste in this curry. But flavour-wise, making your own paste will really lift your curry out of the ordinary. This paste is easily assembled from ingredients that are not too tricky to find. For a vegetarian paste, leave out the fish sauce and replace with salt or soy sauce.
Combine all the ingredients for the curry paste in a blender or processor and blend to a smooth paste. If necessary, add a little more water for consistency.
This paste can be made an hour or two ahead, but it will lose its lovely fresh flavour if left much longer.
Slice the broccoli and courgettes. Heat the oil in a large saucepan or wok. Add the courgettes and broccoli and stir-fry for a few minutes until the vegetables are just tender.
Add the curry paste and stir to combine. Add the coconut cream and mix. Bring to a gentle simmer.
Add the fish and cook for 2-3 minutes until it turns opaque. Add the scallops and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Thin with up to half a cup of water if necessary. Add the peas.
Taste before adding the fish sauce, sugar, and chilli if desired.
Serve with steamed jasmine rice and garnish with coriander and lime leaves.
To make a red curry, add ½ red capsicum to the paste mixture, and replace broccoli and courgettes with red capsicums and sweeter vegetables like kumara and pumpkin. This is really good with beef or lamb.
