Chef Ray – Massaman Curry with Jasmine and Pea Rice

Fresh and delicious this meal is packed full of flavour.

From: Swain, Sarah; (July 2019) in Budget-Friendly Belly-Warmers Healthy Food Guide

Serves 4

  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 4 shallots, sliced
  • 450g beef chuck steak, trimmed, cubed
  • ½ cup reduced-salt vegetable stock
  • 4 teaspoons massaman curry paste or medium curry paste
  • ½ cup light coconut milk
  • 1 cup passata
  • ¼ cup unsalted cashew nuts
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 6 cardamom pods, lightly crushed
  • ¼ cup sultanas
  • 2 potatoes, peeled, cubed
  • 2 carrots, peeled, sliced

To serve

  • ¾ cup jasmine rice
  • ¾ cup peas
  • ⅓ cup fresh coriander
  1. In a non-stick pan, heat oil over medium-high. Add shallots and cook for a few minutes. Add beef and brown, stirring continuously, until evenly coloured. Remove beef and shallots from pan and set aside.
  2. To the pan, add half of the stock and heat. Stir in curry paste and cook for a minute to release the curry flavours and aromas.
  3. Return beef and shallots to the pan. Add remaining curry ingredients and 1½ cups water. Stir to combine. Cover the pan, reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally for 1½ hours.
  4. Thirty minutes before serving, to a saucepan of boiling water, add rice. Cook for 15 minutes then add the peas. Cook for 5 more minutes and drain well.
  5. Serve the curry with rice and fresh coriander.

Although I’m not a qualified chef I do like to pretend I’m on Master Chef. I source the recipes from the stated source (not sauce) and make them taking the photo of the meal I produce for myself.
