Massam Curry


This is a great dish that you can make in your crock pot for those days when you don’t have much time. You can throw it together in the morning and not worry about it until evening. It is also a great way to stretch your chicken. I had this curry at a Thai restaurant this summer and knew that I needed to recreate it. Off I went to the Asian market near my parent’s house to stock up on curry paste to get me through the year. I went a little crazy and bought five different kinds. What can I say, I love curry… Someday I would like to make my own paste but since it’s hard for me to find all the ingredients I need I just content myself with the paste. For now… Palm sugar can be found at Asian markets in paste or block form

Massam Curry

Makes 4-5 servings

1 can full fat coconut milk
2 potatoes, peeled if desired
1 medium onion
2 large carrots
2 chicken boneless skinless thighs
1/2 cup chopped crispy peanuts
4 TBS Massam Curry Paste
2 TBS palm sugar
1 Avocado

Cut your potatoes, onion, carrots and chicken into bit sized chunks. Put in a crock pot. Add the coconut milk, peanuts, curry paste and palm sugar. Stir and cook on low for eight hours. When the curry is done pour over plain brown rice. Cut the avocado into small pieces and put on the top of each bowl.

  1. You say that we should add coconut milk in the directions, but it isn’t listed in the ingredients list. How much do we use

  2. This looks like a lovely dinner to come home to, thanks for sharing with the Hearth and Soul hop.
