2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the rice

  • Rinse the rice.
In a small sauce pot, combine the rice and ¾ cup [1½ cups] water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, 12 to 15 minutes. Fluff with a fork, cover, and keep warm.
While the rice cooks, prepare the chicken curry.


Prep the curry ingredients

  • Using the bottom of a bowl or cup, lightly crush the cashews; set aside half for garnish.
  • Scrape off any seeds from the roasted red peppers; coarsely chop any large pieces.
  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.


Cook the chicken curry

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons [2 to 3 tsp] oil until hot but not smoking. Stir in the lemongrass paste, massaman seasoning blend, tamarind paste, tomatoes, and half each of the fish sauce and cashews and cook until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the roasted red peppers, chicken, and coconut milk and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the chicken is cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt, pepper, and more fish sauce.
When the chicken is almost done, prepare the cilantro.


Prep the cilantro

  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.


Transfer the rice to individual plates and top with the chicken and sauce. Garnish with the cilantro and remaining cashews and serve.
