  1. In a mortar and pestle crush all the spices and herbs together until it is a fine paste.
  2. In a frypan with a little oil cook off the paste until it is aromatic, then add the grated coconut sugar and let it melt and caramelize then set aside.
  3. Seal off the diced beef in a very hot pot with a little vegetable oil until caramelized, then add the massaman curry paste, turn down the heat to medium so as not to burn the paste and cook out for another 2-4 minutes.
