A popular dish that was born from Persian influences mixed with Thai flavours, this is a rich but mild curry featuring tender beef, potatoes and crushed peanuts with a coconut and tangy tamarind sauce. Normally cooked for hours in a steel pot, we’ve captured the essence of this travellers’ favourite by preparing the fiddly tamarind and grinding down the galangal and lemongrass and blending it into our signature Massaman paste. A fragrant but hearty curry for any night of the week.

Our 25 minute recipe

  1. Cook the rice and potatoes

    Cook the rice according to pack instructions.

    Boil the potatoes until tender, then drain. While the potatoes and rice cook, start on Step 2. 

  2. Meanwhile, sear the beef

    Heat a little oil in a pan over high heat. Place the beef slices in the pan on a single layer (in batches if needed). Sear them quickly so they colour on each side before removing from the pan and keeping aside. 

  3. Create the curry base

    Reduce the heat to medium, add the onion and-fry for 1 min.

    Add the MASSAMAN PASTE and fry for 1 min then pour in the coconut milk. Mix well and cook for 2 mins. 

  4. Add the vegetables

    Add the GINGER CHICKEN STOCK pot and the TAMARIND. Mix well and bring it to a gentle boil.

    Add the green beans and half of the peanuts (if using), then let it cook over a medium heat for 3 mins.

    Add the potatoes and the beef and let it cook for 2 more mins. 

  5. Serve!

    Add 1-2 tsps sugar to taste, then serve the curry over rice with more crushed peanuts scattered on top.

I’ve had massaman in restaurants before and this was as tasty, to make veggie I had to substitute the stock with my own and added tofu instead of meat.. very tasty

This is a nice warming curry to have on a cold winters evening. The tamarind flavour really came through. I actually cooked it in my slow cooker as I am not so keen if meat is a bit chewy. The beef just fell apart and was so tender. Yummy!

This was absolutely fantastic. Just about the same as you would get in a Thai restaurant. Definitely one of my favourites.

Concerns me that the same pods of seasoning/stock/paste works for both 2 and 4 portions, I'm sure there would be a more intense flavour if only cooking for 2, maybe bigger pods for a 4 portion recipe would be a good idea?/

Very tasty and delicious I even added some veg to it. Will definitely make this again
