For those who are interested and may not know Massaman curry is a Mild Tamarind, Peanut and Coconut Milk Based Chicken Curry served with Steamed Jasmine Rice. The flavoring for Massaman curry is called Massaman curry paste (nam phrik kaeng massaman). The dish usually contains coconut milk, roasted peanuts or cashews, potatoes, bay leaves, cardamom pods, cinnamon, star anise, palm sugar, fish sauce, chili and tamarind sauce.
