We make a sort of Laksa come curry paste using:
lots of garlic
large bunch of coriander
lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves or lemon rhind
pepper and salt.
You can use it as a curry paste, add some shrimp past and fish sauce and make your laska (coconut cream of course) and even as a pizza base for a seafood pizza. You can add sugar and more chilies and make a chili jam - Jamie Oliver has a good recipe.
(this paste freezes well)
