Massaman Curry

  1. a dish of meat, vegetables, etc., cooked in an Indian-style sauce of strong spices and turmeric and typically served with rice.

So I love Thai food. After spending several weeks there a couple years ago there was no going back, I loved the cuisine. It is common as a farang to do a short cooking course. I certainly enjoyed the course, and even more the small cookbook that came with it. One of my favorites, especially on a cooler day, is Massaman Curry. This one is a pretty simple dish of meat and potatoes.



What I used:

  • One can of coconut milk
  • Jasmine rice
  • Sliced beef
  • Diced potatoes
  • Massaman curry paste
  • Brown sugar
  • Fish sauce

What I did:

  1. Add a can of coconut milk to a wok
  2. Add several spoonfuls of paste, a spoonful of brown sugar, several dashes of fish sauce.
  3. Mix together and heat.
  4. Add diced potatoes and beef pieces.
  5. Cook together in the coconut sauce until cooked through.
  6. Serve over jasmine rice.

This is definitely one to make a big batch of, served mix through the rice the next day, it is a GREAT comfort food.

Enjoy, and bon appetit!
