Thai Massaman Curry Paste - Hand Brand - Mae Ploy
Massaman (matsaman) Curry Paste, Hand Brand, 7 oz
Massaman curry from Thailand has a mix of Malay, India, and muslim nation flavors, and it's often served with potato (see recipes below, massaman is also a wonderful part of Thai peanut sauce).
This is a "gourmet" massaman curry from the highest quality spice company in Thailand, made in small batches using the finest ingredients. Since 1999 we've made personal visits to various producers in Thailand, and Hand Brand is our top choice for curry paste based entirely on flavor and quality control. It's likely better than anything you can make at home using a mortar and pestle (see video below on how it's made).
With our premium "Hand Brand Number One" label, you get two 3.5 oz packets, each packet will make enough Thai curry to feed 4-6 people. We like the rich, fresh flavor, we can really taste the difference between this brand and Mae Ploy and Maesri massaman curry paste. Taste is complex and heavier to the natural herbs, as only the best all natural ingredients are used.
Ingredients: dried red chile, garlic, shallot, salt, lemongrass, cumin seed, coriander seed, cinnamon, galangal, cardamom. Product of Thailand.
Massaman (matsaman), Mae Ploy brand, 14 oz
We also offer massaman curry paste in the well-known Mae Ploy brand, recognized in Thailand as a high quality export product with rich taste and authentic flavor. Many Thai restaurants use Mae Ploy, a mass-produced curry paste with consistent flavor. It's packed in a convenient plastic tub with tighly sealed lid, and the price is very affordable (half the cost of Hand Brand when considering the weight).
Ingredients: dried red chile, shallot, garlic, lemongrass, salt, galanga, shrimp paste, coriander seed, cumin, star anise, cardamon, cinnamon. Product of Thailand.
