Massaman Curry Aux Bang

Massaman curry is a Southern Thai dish that can be made with beef, chicken, pork or lamb. During a recent trip to Thailand we had the extreme pleasure of having this particular Massaman curry made for us by a local chef known to us as “Bang”. It was the best curry dish we have ever tried so we couldn’t resist sharing it!

1/2 tablespoon of oil
1 heaping tablespoon Massaman Curry Paste
1/2 liter coconut milk
2 10 cm cinnamon sticks
2 tablespoons crushed almonds, almost to a powder consistency
Cut pieces of either chicken, beef, lamb or pork (quantity for 4 people)
Chopped onion and carrots (quantity for 4 people)
Cubed potato and sweet potato (quantity for 4 people)
Cashew nuts
3 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
Jasmine rice

  1. Heat oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat.
  2. Add Massaman curry paste to the pan and when it gets fragrant add the coconut milk, stir and heat until mixture starts bubbling.
  3. Add the 2 cinnamon sticks and the crushed almonds and mix thoroughly.
  4. Add the desired quantity of meat, vegetables and cashew nuts.
  5. Simmer for 20 minutes until meat is cooked and potatoes and carrots are soft.
