Massaman Curry

There is a lovely restaurant that I go to with my friends called The Cuckoo. My favourite dish is their chicken Massaman curry and so a while ago I thought I'd have a go at make my own. I kept meaning to write up the recipe and just didn't seem to get round to it. Well I have now!!

Serves 6

900g chicken breast pieces
2 red onions
1 inch of ginger
2 cloves of garlic
200g peeled potato cut into small pieces
4 tomatoes
300ml chicken stock
1 tin of coconut milk (full fat)
2 tsp tamarind
1 tsp fish sauce
1 cinnamon stick
handful of toasted cashew nuts
1 red chilli
fresh coriander leaves

In a large pan, fry the red onions in a little olive oil until soft. Add the curry paste and grate in the ginger and garlic cloves. Add 20ml of the chicken stock and continue to cook over a medium heat for 3 minutes.

Add the coconut milk, the remaining stock, potatoes, tamarind, cinnamon stick and fish sauce. Cover and cook for 30-40 minutes or until the potato pieces are tender.

Chop the chicken into thin slivers. Add to the pan, cover and continue to cook over a medium heat for about 20-30 minutes or until the chicken pieces are cooked thoroughly.

Spoon into bowls, garnish with the cashew nuts, chopped red chilli and a sprinkling of coriander leaves along with some rice.
