Massaman Stir Fry

This Massaman stir fry was so quick and simple but hits the spot in terms of flavour!

We were tempted to order a take away like many on a Friday night but decided to whip something up even quicker than a take away. This takes 20-30 mins (depending on how quick you can chop!)

Ingredients

  • Wholewheat noodles (or any noodles of your choice)
  • Massaman paste
  • Coconut milk (we chose reduced fat)
  • Soy Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rapeseed oil (or any oil you have)
  • Garlic
  • Broccoli
  • Carrots
  • Spring onions
  • Mushrooms
  • Onions
  • Potatoes
  • Cashew Nuts
  • Curry powder & Paprika (optional)

Step 1: Chop up all your veg

Step 2: Put the potatoes in boiling water for 5 – 10 mins.

Step 2: Put the pan on a high heat, once the oil is hot throw in your onions and garlic to sweat down. Once the onions become clear pop in the carrots, mushrooms and spring onions.

Step 3: Drain the spuds and put them in a hot tray with oil in the oven at 180 °C for 10-15 mins.

Step 4: Put the noodles in boiling water for 5-6 mins.

Step 5: Add 4-5 tablespoons of paste, 1 tablespoon of soy sauce and 200-300ml of coconut milk (add more milk if you want it have more sauce like a curry).

Step 6: Put the broccoli in the pan with the other veg and put a lid on the pan to let the broccoli steam for 5 mins.

Step 7: Add a sprinkle of curry powder and paprika, once the noodles are ready mix them into the pan with the veg.

Step 8: Take the potatoes out of the oven.

Step 9: Plate up the stir fry and top with the potatoes and cashew nuts.
