  • Summary

    While it's unclear whether the origin of this Thai curry dish is Muslim, Indian, or Malaysian, one thing is for sure: it's absolutely delicious. Massaman curry paste is chock-full of fragrant spices, from coriander and cumin to cardamom and cinnamon, and gives the beef-and-potato stew a rich flavor base.
