Massaman Curry Powder




A blend of spices for making an authentic tasting Massaman curry.

Description & Use

This is a Thai curry powder with a difference: instead of the expected light, sharp flavors we often see in Thai green and red curries, Massaman curry powder borrows its heritage from a distinctly Malay influence. This combination of deep-flavored spices combined with galangal and star anise, usually seen in Malay and Indian curries, results in a sumptuous, rich satisfying curry.

Blended and packed in Australia from imported and local ingredients.
