Chicken Massaman Curry

This classic Thai curry is an easy one to prepare and a filling one to consume. We’ve allowed for half a jar of Massaman curry paste but feel free to put as little or as much in as you like depending on how hot you like your south-east Asian dishes. The traditional version uses additional ingredients such as ginger, peanuts and tamarind, but this easy version keeps well within budget whilst still packing in plenty of flavour.

  • Ingredients

    3tbsp (Approximately Half a Small Jar) Massaman Curry Paste
    400ml Tin Coconut Milk
    400g Chicken Breast Diced
    500g Potatoes Peeled and Diced
    300g Basmati Rice
    Splash of Fish Sauce

How to Cook

1. Pour the coconut milk into a large saucepan with the curry paste and gently heat until simmering.

2. Boil a pan of salted hot water for the rice and then cook the basmati according to packet instructions (this should take 10-15 minutes).

3. Add the diced potatoes to the coconut milk and cook for 5 minutes.

4. Add the diced chicken breast and simmer in the coconut milk for 5 minutes or until cooked.

5. Add a splash of fish sauce to season, taste it to check it tastes good then serve on a bed of the basmati rice.

Spruce it Up

Add a handful of crushed or whole cashews to the curry just before serving to add another texture to the curry. Try crushing whole cashews slightly just using your hand to break them up into easier to eat chunks throughout the curry.
