This semi-homemade recipe will become one of your go-to’s.

It’s super easy and delicious. All you have to do is a pantry and fridge raid, pull your favorite veggies, protein, and rice and you’re good to go!

The two non-negotiables are Mike’s Curry Love Massaman Paste and a good can of coconut milk.

Everything else is up to you.

The ingredients I used are:

  • Carrots
  • Mushrooms
  • Sliced Chicken Breast
  • Red bell pepper
  • Basil
  • Ginger
  • Pinch of sugar
  • Dash of Worcestershire (I didn’t have fish sauce)
  • Jasmine Rice
  • Ready-made naan

I sauteed the chicken in a little olive oil and set aside, then sauteed the veggies for a few minutes to pre-cook them a bit and set them aside too.

Mike’s Curry Love directions for the paste are easy. Put a little coconut oil in the pan and bloom the paste (cook it for about 5 minutes until fragrant) then add all the veggies, chicken and coconut milk back in.

I simmered everything together for about 10 minutes to marry all the flavors.

Served over jasmine rice with a side of naan and bam! 💥

When you want a quick and delicious meal, this Massaman Curry is the answer.



  • One packet of Mike’s Curry Love Massaman Paste
  • One can of good Thai Coconut Milk
  • Olive oil for sauteing
  • Any veggies you like — I chopped up carrots (mushrooms, red bell peppers)
  • Herbs and additional spices — I added a tablespoon of fresh basil (a teaspoon of fresh minced ginger, a pinch of sugar and a couple dashes of Worcestershire sauce because I didn’t have any fish sauce)
  • Protein of choice — One large chicken breast (cubed)
  • Jasmine rice
  • Ready-made Naan


  1. Follow the directions on the packet of  Mike’s Curry Love Massaman PasteWhich basically says to sautee the curry paste in a little oil, add the coconut milk and the cooked veggies and protein.
  2. To cook the chicken and veggies, first I sauteed the chicken and removed it from the pan.
  3. Next, I sauteed the veggies in a little olive oil until just tender with a little crunch left.
  4. Add everything back to the curry and coconut and simmer for about 10 minutes to marry the flavors.
  5. Serve with jasmine rice and a side of naan for an extra special treat!
