I'm back...

with a pot of masman curry...

After a long break with family and friends, I'm back to my kitchen again. I'm not sure where to start as I have so many recipes in my head. For some recipes, I need to do the experiment before I post it. This post doesn't need any experiment and it's perfect for my craving.
I sometimes wonder if it's hard to make a delicious dish of our own cuisine. I get frustrate when I get an unsatisfied food from the restaurants who suppose to know their food better than anyone. May be they've never taste their food--that's why.
I do taste my food. If it doesn't taste right, I will not serve it. We should treat people the way we treat ourself. For me, food is a culture. It tells people who we are and where we come from.
yield 3 servings
- 6 chicken drumsticks
- 2 tb. masman curry paste
- 10 oz. coconut milk
- 1 tb. palm sugar
- 1 tb. fish sauce
- 1 yellow onion, cut into eights
- 15 baby dutch yellow potatoes, peeled
- 2 tb. roasted peanuts, coarsely broken up
1. Heat the curry paste with half of coconut milk on medium heat until the oil begins to separate.
2. Add the drumsticks, onion, potatoes, palm sugar, fish sauce and the rest of coconut milk.
3. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer until the drumsticks are tendered and the sauce is thickened. Take about 30-45 minutes.
4. Uncover, stir in the peanuts and remove from the heat.
5. Serves over cooked rice.

I love day old Masman Curry (refrigerated and reheated) Thick & rich. Forget the rice. I eat it with charcoal grilled thick cut Texas bread.

Hope you are not on murder case (jury duty), super stressful and lot of emotion involved.

Thip, I just read your comment. That was very sweet of you. Hope you didn't weep for the silly love story.. :)

Thanks again..

I grew up with curries, Darlene. They were easy to get from the markets or street vendors. Whenever my family didn't feel like cooking, we bought them home. Any meat would go well with this curry.

Right, House. A day old curry is a perfect curry. I eat curry with rice, couscous, spaghetti, bread or naan.
