Vegan Massaman Curry

This vegan Curry combines the flavor from Persia and Thailand. Traditional cooked with Beef or pork we created a vegan Version. Witch is, in our opinion, better than all versions with meat. Simple, for sure, and with all the oriental flavors like star anis and cinnamon this curry is one of our favorites so far!
