Massaman Stir Fry

Stir fry is a staple dish at our house.  This recipe was originally made up by my mother, and it is seriously tastey! It would make enough for 6, with leftovers probably.

700g sweet potoato, peeled and cut into 2cm chunks
500g chicken or beef
2 pkt tofu
2 onion
3 carrots
3 zucchini
2 handful of green beans
2/3 cup massaman curry paste, plus 2 tbsp
1 can carnation lite coconut milk
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/3 cup roasted unsalted peanuts
2/3 cup fresh chopped coriander

Boil, steam or microwave potatoes til under.  Drain.  Do the same for the zucchini and beans.  Trim away and discard any excess fat from chicken or beef.  Thinly slice and cook in a frypan.  Once meat is cooked, remove it and keep it warm.  In frypan, cook onion, carrots and paste together.  Add milk. Stir-fry until carrots are tender. Add tofu. Return chicken to frypan with potatoes, zucchini, beans, sauce, sugar and peanuts.  Stir fry until hot.  Stir in corriander.  Serve.

  13. We have lots of curry powder here, but massaman seems to be something new to me, as's bound to be yummy for sure :)

  14. What a yummy stir-fry! The curry must give it amazing flavor. Great dish!

  15. Thank you for the kind words! What a delicious sounding stir fry, your recipes are great!

  16. This looks so good. I'm on a HUGE tofu kick. The trouble is, is that the rest of my family doesn't like it. I usually just make enough for 2, have a dinner and next days lunch for me. The family usually isn't too picky, but I can't get them to like tofu. :(
