The name massaman is derived from the word ‘musselman’, the ancient word for Muslim.

Whilst many Thai curries rely heavily on fresh ingredients, this one contains a huge variety of dried Indian spices that would have been imported by the Muslim traders - after whom the curry is named.

5/5

Yum! Our first go at a recipe, and definitely not the last!

A lovely dark curry - delicious!

5/5

Great recipe spot on flavour. If I could have given it higher than a 5/5 I would have!! This is definitely my favourite Thai curry. We adjusted the recipe based on advice we were given when travelling in Thailand and used tinned potatoes. This may sounds strange but they hold their shape best when cooking.

Glad you really enjoyed this! Everything looks delicious and thanks for the tip about the tinned potatoes, one for us to try ourselves!

5/5

Definitely restaurant quality, cant wait to make it again

WOW this is a magnificent Massaman curry, hats off to the chef!

5/5

1/6/22 - a fantastic curry that I will be repeating. Long time cooking but worth it for the rich taste
