Today we travel to Thailand to prepare one of the most famous varieties of curry: Massaman curry.

This variety of curry can be cooked with two types of meat, on the one hand, there is the Massaman beef curry, which is what we will prepare today or on the other hand the chicken curry. This is a delicious dish with a very creamy texture, flavour, aroma, and strong nuances. When cooking over low heat, we soften the meat and soak all the ingredients to taste.
