This Thai massaman curry comes together quickly, but with all of its complex flavors you will have people thinking you spent all day over the stove. Potatos and lamb act as a hearty base for this delicious meal. Coconut and tamarind add extra flavor and a sprinkling of peanuts adds a nice crunch and a bit of nuttiness. Make a batch of rice while the curry cooks, then use it as the base for the curry.

Ingredients

  • 8 potatoes (medium size)
  • 1 kilogram boneless lamb (or beef tenderloin or chicken breast)
  • 2 cloves
  • 2 tablespoons coconut cream
  • 400 milliliters coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons Massaman curry paste (depending on how spicy you like it)
  • 3 tablespoons palm sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 3 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 4 tablespoons tamarind juice
  • 1/3 peanuts
  • ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. Peel the potatoes, cut them in half, and then into slices.
  2. Put them in a pan of cold water over medium heat. From the moment it starts to boil, let them cook for ten minutes. They should still be slightly firm. Drain and set them aside.
  3. Meanwhile, cut the meat into cubes and crush the garlic cloves.
  4. In a wok, heat the coconut cream over high heat.
  5. Once it dries, add the coconut milk.
  6. When the milk starts to boil, add the curry paste and stir constantly until the mixture is homogeneous and fragrant.
  7. Then add the meat and garlic and reduce heat.
  8. Stir and cook for 3/4 minutes.
  9. Then add sugar, fish sauce, tamarind juice and potatoes.
  10. Continue cooking until the meat is cooked.
  11. Before serving, add the peanuts and 1 pinch of cinnamon.
  12. Serve with white rice.

I loved this hearty and delicious curry. I used chicken breast and it stayed moist and tender from cooking in the cream. It was great served over jasmine rice.
