Steps to Prepare

Vegan Lentil Massaman Curry Step 1

Step 1 of 4

    • 3 Small onions

Let’s begin with peeling and cutting the onion. I use small onion so I will just chop them in half. If you use larger onion, you can cut them into quarter pieces. The rest of the ingredients are already prepared. To check again we have cooked potatoes cut into quarter pieces, cooked lentil, coconut milk and other seasoning ingredients.

Step 2 of 4

    • 2 cup coconut milk
    • 50 g Massaman curry paste

Now let's start making Massaman Curry. We are going to crack coconut cream first. Add half a cup of coconut milk or cream into a pot. Add Massaman curry paste and stir well. when the ingredients heated up, the coconut cream will start to crack. This means that the oil and water starts to separate from each other.

Now, let fry our curry paste by adding ½ cup of coconut milk into a put, together with the curry paste. Stir the coconut milk and curry paste until the coconut cream is cracked, or when the oil is separate from the milk body.

You can observe by looking at the surface, when it’s cracked you will see yellowish oil floating on the top.

    • 2 tsp Tamarind paste
    • 2 tsp brown sugar
    • 1 tsp sea salt
    • 1 cup water
    • 260 g potatoes
    • 80 g Lentil (uncooked)
    • 20 g Peanut toasted

Add bay leaf and season the curry with sugar, tamarind and salt. Taste the curry and adjust the flavour. The flavour that you are after is salty and follow by a touch of sweet and sour. Next, you can add the rest of the coconut milk and water and then add onion. It will take about 15 minutes for the onion soften. You can let the curry simmer over medium heat.

When the onion is cooked, add potatoes, lentil and peanut.
