Namya paste is usually made for fish curries. It has a ton of spices like fingerroot (gra-chai or Chinese ginger so called because the shape of the rhizome resembles that of fingers growing out of a center piece), shallots, dried red chilies, kaffir lime, coriander seeds, garlic, lemongrass and galangal. The paste itself is vegetarian so can be used in making vegetarian curries too @sarchakra
