If you have ever eaten at Thai Chili Garden in Orem or Thai House in Lehi and enjoyed their Masman then you will love this! This is the exact same curry paste they use, I've asked.

2 1/2 T Masman Paste (pictured above)*
2 C Coconut milk
1 Lg. Chicken Breast, thinly sliced
2 Med Potatoes, cubed
1/4 C Onion, chopped
1 T Peanut Butter
3/4 C Water
2 T Cashews, roasted and salted (or whatever you have)
1T Sugar
1T Tamarind Paste  
(you don't have to use this but it does make it taste better)

  1. Add masman paste and coconut milk to a med/lg pot.
  2. Boil and stir until paste is dissolved
  3. Add chicken, potatoes, onion, peanut butter, and water
  4. Boil about 20 minutes until potatoes are soft
  5. Take off heat and add sugar, tamarind paste, and cashews.
  6. Serve over rice
  7. If you would like a hotter flavor add more masmun paste if you would like it more mild add less. It is probable a mild/medium with the amount above.
* You can find masman paste and tamarind paste at these following locations in Utah:
Many Lands   1145 N 500 W Provo, across the street from UVRMC.
Vinh Long Oriental Food Market   119 W 7200 S Midvale. About one mile off of 7200 exit.
Online: You can purchase it online here or just Google it.

This paste costs around $6.00 for a large tub and $4.00 for a small tub. The small one probably make around 20 batches, I usually give a lot of it away. They also sell 4 different flavors, yellow curry, green curry and I can't remember the last one.They are all good and have the recipes on the back. So try one or all you won't be disappointed!
