Bankside Cuisine | Chicken Massaman Curry

A little more complex to cook but putting in that extra effort really does bring its reward! This recipe is a classic Thai dish, a mild curry which is packed full of flavour and spices. Massaman paste contains ingredients such as cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, star anise, cumin, nutmeg, chilli peppers, coriander, lemongrass, garlic and much more for a real depth of flavour… thankfully you don’t need to buy all those things, just grab a ready-made paste from a quality supermarket! However if you can’t find it, try a generic Thai Red Curry paste as a good alternative.
