Well, I have Nancie McDermott's Real Vegetarian Thai book. In it, she has a mussamun curry paste and matching meal recipe.<br><br><br><br>
I've now tried it twice... to my GREAT disappointment. It's not ANYTHING like ANY of my favorite Thai restaurants. Waaaaay too spicy and the flavor is way off. WAY off.<br><br><br><br>
I'm horribly disappointed. (Maybe b/c her recipe doesn't call for any Tamarind - would that account for the big diff?) Her other curries seem to close to this recipe... looks like she got a little lazy. So, I'm not happy with this book. And finding a mussamun curry recipe was the main reason I bought this thing. *sigh*<br><br><br><br>
(And now I have a TON of homemade curry paste with which I don't know what to do with it. Guess I'll have to find more recipes to see if I can figure out some other flavor combos to make it work.)<br><br><br><br>
So... I'm on a mission.<br><br><br><br>
Anyone got a decent mussamun curry paste/meal recipe?<br><br><br><br>
I'm desparate as it's way too far to drive every time I want this curry (which is weekly if not twice weekly, ykwim?) from my favorite Thai restaurant.<br><br><br><br>
I've already searched the recipe listings here to no avail... unless someone spelled it differently.<br><br><br><br>
So... can you help? Please? Pretty Preety Puullleeeaaazzeee? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/help.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":help:">

I tried searching the net for recipes using different spellings (Masaman, massaman, mussaman, etc.), and came up with a few recipes... (They all call for shrimp paste and/or fish sauce, but in amounts you could easily omit)<br><br><br><br><a href="http://thaifood.about.com/od/thaicurrypasterecipes/r/massamanpaste.htm" target="_blank"><span style="color:#191970;">http://thaifood.about.com/od/thaicur...samanpaste.htm</span></a><br><br><a href="http://www.massrecipes.com/recipes/96/09/prikkaengmasamanmasamancu115077.html" target="_blank">http://www.massrecipes.com/recipes/9...ncu115077.html</a><br><br><a href="http://www.recipehound.com/Recipes/Recipes2/6880.html" target="_blank">http://www.recipehound.com/Recipes/Recipes2/6880.html</a><br><br><a href="http://recipes.epicurean.com/recipe/14546/mussaman-curry-paste.html" target="_blank">http://recipes.epicurean.com/recipe/...rry-paste.html</a><br><br><a href="http://recipes.chef2chef.net/recipe-archive/8/A08769.shtml" target="_blank">http://recipes.chef2chef.net/recipe-...8/A08769.shtml</a><br><br><a href="http://www.recipezaar.com/70577" target="_blank">http://www.recipezaar.com/70577</a><br><br><br><br>
