one of my favorite meals of ALL TIME!

it's a Thai dish, and this post is actually specifically for the house warden; go visit her!

when i make this, i make a HUGE pot of it; we end up with some left over, which is great because i can eat it for lunch for the next week. :)

Mussaman Curry
3 T. mussaman curry paste
1/2 c. coconut cream
500 g meat (i like pork or chicken best)
500 ml coconut milk
5 cardomon seeds
1 cinnamon stick
200 g potatoes, cut in 4 pieces each
1 T. peanuts (or cashews)
3 bay leaves
3 T. brown sugar
3 T. fish sauce
3 T. tamarind juice

Cook curry paste and coconut cream together for about 5 minutes. Add meat and cook 8-10 min. Add coconut milk, bring to a boil, and simmer for 10 more minutes. Add all other ingredients; cook until potatoes are tender. Serve with rice.

So I consider myself a pretty decent cook, someone who know's what they are doing in the kitchen. So can you help me out a bit and give me "American" amounts like cups, pounds, etc? Now some of these ingredients seem like stuff you have to buy at a specialty store (mussaman curry paste, cardomon seeds, fish sauce, and tamarind juice), am I right?

Yummy! Everybody in our house, except the chihuahuas, loves Thai food. I'll have to try this recipe. I hope you are having a good day.

hi house warden - the coconut milk can be found in regular grocery stores, as can cardomon seeds. the other things you listed you'd have to go to a Thai food store (or probably a chinese food store would have them)

amounts....i don't measure too much any more, once you know how it tastes, you won't need to. but for starting out,

500 g = 1.1 lbs.
200 g = .44 lbs. or 1 cup
500 ml = 2.1 cups

hopefully this helps; if you go to google and type in "500 ml in cups" it will bring you back an answer. kind of cool.

when you have a chance, i'd LOVE to see one (or more) of your favorite japanese recipes....!
