Massaman Curry

Masaman curryMassaman Curry is considered to be rather mild as the heat of the chilies are mellowed with the addition of the dried spices, coconut cream, onions, potatoes and peanuts. Enjoy this fragrant hearty curry on a cold winter day!



  1. Preheat the coconut milk over medium heat until boiling, add chicken thigh, reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes until tender.
  2. Preheat the coconut cream over medium heat until oil surfaces. Add the curry paste, and saute until fragrant. Transfer to the chicken pot, add peanuts. Season to taste with sugar, fish sauce, tamarind juice and lime juice.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients, and simmer until everything is tender and cooked through.
  4. Spoon onto a serving dish, garnish with bay leaf to give a sense of the Thai touch. Pickled ginger or cucumber relish can also be served as condiments.

Nittaya changes everything. The finest brand we've found, Nittaya's paste produces intensely delicious curries without the effort." EPICURIOUS.COM
