This I have not made, as I live in Thailand, this is probably the closest Americanized version of a 'Thai Spice Mix" with actual Thai seasonings used.

Ground Lemongrass and Ground Kaffir Lime Leaves are real things.

Every Thai dish is different with regards to the seasoning for them, so this should get you into the ball park.

While researching this, I see mixes that called for cayenne pepper, cardamom, curry powder (which is yellow and very Indian), mint, ground turmeric, and ground coconut. All of which are not used or rarely in the case of turmeric

Not all Thai dishes are spicy.
