Recipe | Massaman beef ball curry

Ingredients (serves 4):

500g beef mince

1 tsp corn starch

1 egg

2-3 sprigs coriander leaves, finely chopped

1 tsp fish sauce

Pinch of sugar

Pepper to taste

Half cup Massaman curry paste

250 ml coconut milk

2 boiled potatoes, peeled and cubed

1 stick cinnamon

1 kaffir lime leaf

1 red chili, sliced

Fried shallots


1. Prepare beef balls. Place minced beef, corn starch, egg, chopped coriander leaves, fish sauce and sugar in a large mixing bowl.

2. Mix vigorously together, stirring in one direction until mixture comes together. The meat should be slightly sticky. Chill until needed.

3. Prepare sauce. Spoon a little coconut milk to a deep frying pan and add the Massaman paste, stirring to dissolve the paste. Add the rest of the coconut milk, reserving 2 tbsp.

4. Add the cinnamon stick and allow mixture to simmer. Do not allow to boil.

5. Shape beef balls with the aid of a wet spoon and drop the meatballs into the simmering curry. Add potato cubes.

6. Simmer and stir until meatballs are cooked.

7. Spoon the curry into a deep dish and garnish with red chili and deep-fried shallots. Finally, drizzle reserved coconut milk over and serve hot, with rice.
