- Heat vegetable oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in curry paste and minced ginger; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Stir in the cubed chicken, and cook until the pieces turn white on the outside, about 3 minutes.
- Stir in brown sugar, fish sauce, tamarind paste, peanut butter, potatoes, and coconut milk. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the potatoes are tender and the chicken pieces are no longer pink in the center, about 20 minutes.

"Good basic recipe, although you really want to start off frying the paste first with the oil for a couple minutes and then add the creamy part of the coconut milk. Let the two mix better. I also did..." See moren't add peanut butter, because I think that's cheating kind of and another user complained about the thickness of the curry (I like mine soupy, too). I would just use peanuts, throwing them in with the potatoes or at the end, and maybe peanut oil to fry it all up with."
"This was FABULOUS!! I always order this dish at my favorite Thai restaurant -- I made this for dinner tonight and it was just as good, if not better! I used lite coconut milk and I added some carrot..." See mores, basil and unsalted cashews. I didn't have tamarind paste, but here's a good substitute: I processed equal parts dried apricots, prunes, raisins and lemon juice. IT WAS TO DIE FOR!!! I served it over brown rice and both my husband and I loved it. THANKS!!!"
"I couldn't find massaman curry paste anywhere, so I had to use red curry paste. I also used sweet potato instead of white and added onions and carrots as per another reviewer's suggestion. The texture..." See more of the sauce was perfect, but I found it almost needed to be a little sweeter. I might add a little more brown sugar next time. Overall, we liked it quite a bit and plan to make it again."
