Massaman Beef Curry
This Massaman curry is to die for. It packs a real punch in flavour. Recipe can be cooked in a pressure cooker, slow cooker or on the stove in a cast iron pot. We loved making this with just 30 mins in the pressure cooker and the meat just melted in our mouth. This recipe includes the ingredients to make a home made paste but you can also use a jar of Massaman curry paste instead.
