Massaman roast chicken

Massaman roast chicken

by Nitsa Takhiansok

This is a totally delicious way to serve roast chicken as well as being very simple to prepare. Cooking a whole chicken this way is practised in various forms throughout Asia, sometimes pot roasted, sometimes over hot coals and with many different curry pastes. Often cooked in the home, rather than restaurants, which is probably the reason why many Westerners are not familiar with the dish. Well, now is the time to change that and I promise you that you won't regret it!

Lamb Massaman Curry

by Nitsa Takhiansok

Lamb massaman curry is a truly luxurious dish. Lamb Shanks cooked in a Thai massaman sauce become meltingly tender and the spices blend so harmoniously with the lamb it truly is a perfect match. This is an oven cooked dish requiring around 2 ½ hours cooking time. If you are thinking of using a slow cooker, then please check out this link as the recipe would need to be adapted. This is not an everyday curry so personally, I would stick with the oven for best results.

Chicken Massaman Curry

by Nitsa Takhiansok

To my way of thinking there is a lot of Malay influence in this paste with the various spices, it's also one of the very few dishes in Thailand that we cook with potatoes. One thing I can tell you is that I've made this paste from the traditional recipe and that it is one of the most time consuming and complex pastes to make so please treat it with respect :-) By that I mean please don't use one of those dreadful "reduced fat" coconut milks, it just won't work, the additives they put in that ...

Beef Massaman

by Nitsa Takhiansok

A Massaman curry will always be one of my favourite dishes. Rich and creamy and ideal for a feast. My problem is that when I feel like a Massaman curry I often find myself unable to decide between Lamb Massaman, Chicken Massaman or this Beef Massaman. Sometimes my decision might be influenced by the time available to me because a Beef Massaman should never be made with a lean quick cooking cut of steak. Instead, it benefits greatly by being cooked with a far tougher cut of beef that will requ...

Something different

Very different to usual flavours but worth a go - I did with slow cooked beef. High quality paste as always from Nitsa.

Amazing flavours

I have purchased one of each of the pastes, the massamam was the first one we’ve tried and it was fantastic. We can’t wait to try the others👌

Yellow Curry Paste

This paste was milder and more sweet compared to the red and green curry pastes but very tasty. I would definitely purchase again. The use of potatoes made a change.

Mild Thai Green Curry

Absolutely delicious!

Oh my goodness - I can't overstate how delicious this was. I made a pork version from a tenderloin and it was fragrant and had such a depth of flavour without blowing our heads off. It was my daughter's introduction to Thai curries and she is a complete convert. Thank you!
