Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp Tamarind pulp (with ½ cup boiling water)
  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • 500g Fable
  • 500ml Coconut Milk
  • 4 Cardamon Pods, bruised
  • 500ml Coconut Cream (do not shake the tins)
  • 2-3 tbsp ready-made Massaman curry paste
  • 8 baby Onions
  • 8 baby Potatoes, cut in half if too large
  • 2 tbsp Fish Sauce substitute (Fysh Sauce)
  • 2 tbsp Sugar
  • 70g unsalted Roasted Ground Peanuts
  • 1/2 handful Coriander (Cilantro) leaves to serve

Optional

  • Red Chilli to serve
  • Rice
  • Naan

Directions

  1. Put the tamarind pulp and ½ cup boiling water in a bowl and set aside to cool. When cool, mash the pulp to dissolve in the water, then strain and reserve the liquid. Discard the pulp.
  2. Heat the oil in a wok or a large saucepan and cook Fable over high heat for 3-5 minutes, or until browned. Remove with slotted spoon and set aside to add back in later.
  3. Fry the potatoes and cardamon pods for 3-5 minutes, then add the coconut milk and simmer for 25 minutes.
  4. While the potatoes are cooking, put the thick coconut cream from the top of the tins in a saucepan bring to a rapid simmer over medium heat stirring occasionally, and cook for 5-10 minutes, or until the mixture ‘splits’ (the oil starts to separate).
  5. Add the curry paste and onion, cook for 5 minutes or until paste becomes aromatic and onions soften.
  6. Add the slightly fried fable, potato mixture, fish sauce, sugar, peanuts and tamarind liquid, and let simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  7. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves.
  8. Serve HOT with your side dish of choice.
