White Jasmine Rice: Simple, fragrant rice ready in 30 minutes. You can also make it with pot-in-pot following the instructions above. Step 7. Last, add the shrimp paste and use the pestle to pound and mix the paste well lightly. That's it. You are done! Nice job! (; Don't forget to give it a small taste and notice the fresh flavor! Helpful kitchen tools for making Massaman paste Some of our favorite add-ins are broccoli, zucchini, squash, baby eggplants and snow peas. If you like, you could also add in about a cup of frozen veggies. Just look for a blend of veggies that you love!

You will need a solid stone mortar and pestlefor this method. I recommend using one with a 6 inches mouth opening. When pounding, it's easier to start with the more fibrous and sturdy herbs and then move to softer ones towards the end. Once the noodles are cooked, remove one cup of water from the pot of rice noodles and add it to the massaman curry sauce. Dried red chilies.Use these recommended chili peppers. The spicy ones are Thai bird’s eye chilis, Piri Piri chilis, Thai long chilis(Prik Chee Fah), De Arbol, or dried Serrano chilis. The less spicy ones are usually larger peppers likedried California/Anaheim chilisorGualillo.Thisdried chilis setis a good combination of spicy and mild and is good to have around if you often make your curry pastes. Toast the dry spices, cardamon, cloves, cumin, coriander seeds, and white peppercorn on medium heat until fragrant for 2-3 minutes. Keep a close eye on these, as they will burn easily. Using low heat with longer toasting time is fine, too, to prevent burning. Remove the toasted spice from a pan, and transfer to a plate. Let cool. Step 3. Use a spice grinder or a small mortar and pestle to ground the toasted spices to a powder. This is important as some seeds may not get crushed in the food processor and leave large chunks for your paste. Not pleasant to bite into in curries. (:Curry Paste:I prefer Maesri brand curry paste since it is vegetarian (no shrimp paste) and tastes authentic. Other popular brands include Thai Kitchen and Mae Ploy (contains shrimp). Alternatively, use red curry paste with the addition of a teaspoon each of coriander and cumin powder. If you don’t have Jasmine rice on hand, you could use another rice if you prefer. Basmati rice could also work You can find directions on making it here . We use Maesri for our recipe. We find it has the best overall flavor and spice blend. You can use other blends, but we found this one is one of the best you can get. What type of veggies can I add? Beef: If using beef, increase the pressure cooking time to 30 minutes. Skip the baby corn and add it towards the end along with green beans. Follow the remaining instructions. Recipe Tips & Notes You can use the tamarind concentrate is fresh tamarind is not available. This concentrate tends to be stronger so you may need a smaller amount.

If you are reading this outside of Thailand then you will either have to buy a lot of spice ingredients to make your own or buy a mass-produced paste. Don’t forget the limes! Adding a squeeze of fresh lime right before serving ties all those delicious flavors together. This gives it a little extra boost over other Massaman curry recipes I have had.Massaman really good as well, but Im still messing with a few things and this great recipe could be my answer to what I seek.

Ingredients: garlic, sugar, soybean oil, dried red chilies, tamarind juice, shallot, salt, lemongrass, spices (corriander seeds, cumin, cardamom, cinnamon, bay leaves, galangal, cloves), kaffir lime, galangal, citric acid. Drain and pat dry the soaked chiles. Cut into 1-inch pieces, and add into the mortar with the salt. Start pounding with a pestle until smooth.Coconut milk is an emulsion. When it heats up, the oil and water will start to separate into two layers. Cook further until the water is mostly evaporated and only the oil is left behind. Use the coconut oil to cook the Massaman curry paste and saute until it turns aromatic. Coconut Milk: Use full-fat coconut milk of choice. I wouldn't recommend low-fat or fat-free coconut milk in this recipe. Start by pan frying the curry paste with onions in the skillet. This really brings out the flavors in the curry paste.

Basically, if you take Indian curry spices and do a mash up with aromatics used in Thai curries (garlic,lemongrass, galangal), add coconut and peanuts, you end up with Massaman Curry. So it tastes like a mash up between an Indian curry and Thai Curry. I really like Indian food and cook it once or twice a week. I also like Thai food in restaurants but until recently haven't tried cooking it myself because I am so preoccupied with Indian food. However, I recently looked at several recipes for making one's own masaman curry, most of which require up to an hour of time to make the curry paste with ingredients I would have trouble finding locally. Whenever I’m going out for Thai food, I always start with a Thai Green Papaya Salad or Tom Kha Soup. Try your hand at making one of these recipes to serve with this curry dish to create an epic Thai meal at home! More Thai recipes to try
