Recently I was watching an episode of Masterchef Australia where the contestants had to rev up an insipid Masamman dish and I realised it’s been a while my hearth saw some Thai action. The Masamman curry in all its veggie avatar perked up our sunday afternoon with mighty flavours and peppy taste. A Southern Thai dish, the massaman curry has Muslim Origins. Actually the word Massaman roughly means muslim as it is said Thailand got its share of spice from the Muslim Traders who bought them to its shores. though other meats like pork,duck can be used. Of course it goes without saying the curry also tastes good in the vegetarian version with a medley of vegetables and/or tofu. The aromatic and flavourful fuse of spices adds magic to the dish and it tastes awesome with rice or rotis (Indian flat bread). I served the Thai curry with Peas and Cumin Pulao.
