Massaman Curry with Prawns and Basmati Rice

With artichokes and with all vegetables in general I think curries are one of the things that I like the most. Today’s curry is simply delicious. Points to consider: Do it calmly, you should reduce the curry with the cream, juice and chicken broth until you get a little density. When you add the potato chips, bring to a boil for 25 minutes, little by little, so that the potato is just right and the curry is a fine and delicate cream !! Enjoy it, it is worth doing and if you prefer to do it with pork or chicken you have it very easy. Sauté the meat cut into pieces in a saucepan with a little coconut and olive oil. Remove the meat and in that same saucepan proceed with the recipe (see VIDEO RECIPE). At the last moment add the meat and leave on the fire for 5 to 10 minutes. Let it rest before serving, it will gain in flavor !!
