A wonderfully complex and deeply aromatic curry with a flavourful blend of classically Indian spices and Thai aromatics. Perfect with sliced beef or delicious with tofu, vegetables, chicken, duck, lamb and seafood.
Contains a whole spice and aromatics sachet, a curry paste pouch and a coconut milk pouch.
A Massaman curry attests to its Indian heritage as the word ‘Massaman’ means Muslim. This curry definitely incorporates more complex spicing than most Thai curries and has more depth of flavour than some of the more aromatic curries.
We’ve used dried red chilli for heat, cloves for pungent sweetness and green cardamom and cinnamon for sweet warmth. The deeply flavourful blend of Indian-inspired spices - balanced by Thai aromatics and coconut milk - create a perfectly rounded dish that is loved all over the world.
Whilst a Massaman is traditionally cooked with beef and potatoes, it is delicate enough to use with chicken, vegetables, tofu and seafood and is one of the more versatile curries.
Fry the spices and aromatics in 1 tsp of oil (taking care not to overheat the oil)
Add your fresh ingredients and stir fry for 2-3 minutes
Stir in the paste, coconut sauce and 2 tbsp. of water and simmer for 3-4 minutes until the meat or veg is cooked to your liking
Add chilli from the spices pouch for extra heat. Sometimes the coconut sauce separates, do not let this worry you
Vegetarian Thai Massaman Curry
Whilst Massaman is traditionally made with beef, potatoes and onions - it’s such a flavourful and versatile sauce, we love to liven it up vegetables.
Heat 1 tsp. oil in a non-stick pan. Add the aromatics and extra red chilli from the sachet and cook for 10 seconds.
Add one handful of diced red peppers and stir fry for 2 minutes. Add a large handful of tofu puffs (halved), or normal firm tofu along with the Massaman curry paste and fry for 1-2 minutes. Add in the coconut milk, a handful of broccoli florets and courgette slices and 3-4 Kaffir lime leaves, torn into half.
Simmer until the vegetables are cooked to your liking, another 4-5 minutes. Serve hot with plain rice.
For added freshness and aroma, add some kaffir lime leaves with the coconut milk.
For a little contrast, squeeze in a little lime or lemon juice before serving.
Delicious with chicken, tofu, prawns, beef, vegetables and so much more.
