Massaman curry is a favorite Southern Thai comfort food. The fusion of Thai cuisine with Muslim, Malay, and Indian cultures that occurs in Thailand's southern provinces produces a unique style of cuisine, full of great aromatics and flavors that are not found elsewhere in Thailand.
1 cup coconut milk
2 TB massaman curry paste
3 TB palm sugar
2 TB tamarind water
1 fresh bay leaf
1/2 cup cashews, lightly roasted
1.5 cups potato, cubed
1 medium onion, chopped
1.5 cups wheat gluten or soy protein (or substitute fried tofu), cubed
8 pods of white cardamom
1 TB mushroom-flavored soy sauce
Add curry paste, cardamom, palm sugar, tamarind, and bay leaf to coconut milk in pan and stir to combine. Meanwhile, lightly brown wheat gluten/soy protein, potato, and onion in a separate pan. After the coconut curry mixture has cooked for about 5 minutes, add gluten, potato, and onion, and stir. Once potatos are cooked through, add cashews and soy/veggie fish sauce, stir, and serve.
