Thai Masman Curry

This is good stuff. Very very good stuff. Relatively easy, too, considering you have the right curry paste. My dad brought me back various Mae Ploy brand Thai curry pastes (from the US). This is the Masman-Matsman-Massaman flavor. I just followed the directions on the back plus added a few ingredients of my own.
3 tbsp Masman Curry Paste
2 chicken breasts, sliced into thin strips
1 can coconut milk
1 tbsp soybean oil (I used EVOO)
1 cup water
1 onion, diced
1 bell pepper, sliced
1 potato, cubed
some peanut (which I didn't have)
1/2 zucchini, sliced
1 tsp fresh ginger
juice of 1/2 lemon
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp tamarind extract (HA, find that!)
1. Stir fry the curry paste in the oil, then add half the coconut milk.
2. Add the meat and the rest of the coconut milk and heat until boiling.
3. Add the vegetables and 1/2 cup water and cook until vegetables soften.
4. Add the ginger, lemon, sugar and tamarind extract. Taste and add more water if needed. Adjust the seasoning.

Serve with boiled thai rice (or basmati)
Just delicious!
