In a hurry and craving curry? You can make this delicious Massaman Curry and Jasmine Rice in under 30 minutes. True story.
My family and I discovered an amazing Thai restaurant in Chattanooga when we passed through the city a few years ago. It was then that we all fell in love with Thai food. It was also there that I tried Massaman Curry for the first time and knew that I needed to learn how to make it at home.
According to resources on the internet – so we know it must be true (*wink wink*)- Massaman Curry is an interpretation of a Persian dish. It appears that the dish originated in the 17th century in Central Thailand via a Persian merchant.
The original recipe that I started making is a little time consuming – one has to chop an onion, dice potatoes, cut up chicken and cook it, etc. etc. etc. Knowing that we are often pressed for time, I adapted the recipe so that it can be made in just under half an hour. With school back in session, ball games to attend, and what not, we are all strapped for precious time yet still want to eat well.
To simplify the recipe, I use pre-chopped onion from the produce section, canned diced new potatoes, precooked chicken from the meat department, and Success Jasmine Rice.
To make it, I start by preparing Success® Jasmine Rice.
Success Jasmine Rice is the only no measure, no mess boil-in-bag rice. It comes pre-packaged in BPA-free boil-in-bags that you don’t have to measure. The sweet buttery fragrance, silky, smooth, white grains will be fully cooked in 10 minutes. Plus. it’s gluten-free and can be incorporated into both Asian inspired dishes – like my Massaman Curry – and even mainstream recipes.
Once I have the rice on the stove top, I make the Massaman Curry sauce. It’s a creamy, peanutty sauce that you can make with ingredients that can be found at your grocery store.
Next up, onions get sautéed in sesame oil. After just a couple of minutes, the potatoes, chicken, and curry sauce are added and then simmered for 10-15 minutes.
All that is left is draining the Jasmine rice and plating the dish. Served with a side salad, steamed broccoli, or Asian vegetable medley, this is a delicious Thai meal made at home. In a hurry.
My family and I can now enjoy this favorite dish of ours in less time than it takes to drive to the nearest Thai restaurant!
