Lamb Massaman Curry

Simon’s fragrant and spicy Lamb Massaman curry is a Thai interpretation of a Persian dish. The word Massaman is thought to be an archaic version of ‘Muslim’. This dish will make extra curry paste, which you can store in the fridge for a couple of weeks.

This curry contains a whopping 12 chillies – if you want a less spicy version just use fewer.
