Massaman Curry

CookingCompanionsCook

The Massaman Curry – Flo’s favorite – is a very popular recipe from the southern thai cuisine. King Phra Phutthaloetla was so impressed by the taste that he composed a poem about the cook. The dish and its history also inspired Flo. This is why he counts this curry to one of his most favorites. And he also added his own personal touch to the original recipe.
