Cook Time : 25-30 minutes
– 500g of Chicken (preferably thigh or upper thigh, and skinned)
– 70g of Massaman Curry Paste
– 2 Potatoes
– 1L of Water
– 400ml of Coconut Milk « Real Thai ® »

Boil 1 liter of water. Place the potatoes and leave for 20 minutes until cooked al dente.
While the potatoes boil, cut the chicken into thin strips. Once the potatoes are cooked, remove the skin and cut into 4 wedges.
In a frying pan, fry the chicken strips and potatoes in some oil for 5 minutes. Put aside.
Thinly cut the garlic, shallots, makrut lime, chili and ginger. Heat the oil in a pan. Add the curry paste, garlic, shallots, makrut lime, chili and ginger. Fry together over a high flame for 2 minutes.
Stir well to avoid the ingredients sticking to the pan. Lower the flame if necessary.
Add the coconut milk, the chicken, the potatoes and the cinnamon stick, and bring to boil.
Add the fish sauce, sugar, salt, and 5 tablespoons of water, and then leave to simmer for a few minutes over a medium flame until everything is cooked.
Divide everything into 4 bowls, taking out the cinnamon stick, and garnish with crushed cashew nuts and fresh coriander leaves.
