Musaman Gai – a milder curry

This dish from southern Thailand uses coconut milk to produce a thick creamy curry. Musaman takes around two hours to cook correctly. There are many curry pastes on the market but Maesri is a consistent tasting brand. Like “stews”, it is cooked when the potatoes are soft when prodded with a fork. The quantities in this recipe are for four people and you can keep it gently simmering for quite some time till all the guests arrive. Serve in a large bowl in the center of the table and eat with steamed jasmine rice.

Cooking Method

Take the drumsticks and stew gently for one hour. In a big pot fry the curry paste with the oil for two minutes over medium heat. Add onion, chicken, coconut milk, potatoes, peanuts, water and peanut paste. Stir, bring to the boil then cook slowly over a medium heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally to stop burning. Now add the fish sauce, tamarind water and sugar and simmer gently over a low heat. Serve with rice.
