Lovely curry! Where do you get the Masaman curry paste from? Asian shops? I haven't heard from it so excuse my ignorence. Is Masaman the brand?

Wokandspoon-- Yes, you can get this Masaman curry paste at the Asian market. If you go to the Thai food section, I believe you will see it right away. Some spell Masman curry paste. The brand I use here in the US is Mae Ploy. Thanks for stopping by my site. This curry actually good with Malaysian Roti too. Let me know.
