How To Make A Massaman Inspired Soup

This recipe has been made in a Ninja soup maker, but it can be adapted for any soup maker.

For most other soup maker models, you will need to use cooked chicken rather than raw, which makes it the perfect soup for using up leftovers from a roast chicken.

For exact measurements and instructions, head down to the recipe card, where you can also print it off.

What You Need:

massaman soup ingredients
  • 1 onion – chopped
  • Chicken – I used two raw boneless chicken thighs. You can also use chicken breast or cooked chicken (especially if you are using a soup maker model that recommends only using cooked meat).
  • Potatoes – I used about 200g of new potatoes, chopped in half (or quarters for larger potatoes).
  • Coconut milk – I used 1 tin (400g) of coconut milk.
  • Chillies – I used two red bird’s eye chillies. You can leave them out if you prefer a milder taste.
  • Massaman Paste – I used 4 tbsp of paste. You may want to use more or less depending on your paste.
Massaman curry paste
  • Peanut Butter – I used 1 tbsp of smooth peanut butter.
  • Chicken Stock – I used one chicken stock pot (and topped the soup maker jug up to the line with hot water).

Making It

You can optionally saute the onions in a little oil or butter. Add all the ingredients to the soup maker and top up to the MAX line with hot water.

I set this one off on chunky, but you can enjoy it smooth if you prefer.

You can also use the chunky cycle and partially blend it at the end so it has some chunky texture still.

This soup is a fairly thin consistency; add in some extra chicken and/or potatoes for a thicker soup.

Taste the soup and add some seasoning if required. You can also sprinkle some dried chilli flakes on top or optionally garnish with some fresh coriander leaves.

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 to 3 boneless chicken thighs or breasts (see notes)
  • 200g new potatoes, chopped
  • 400g tin coconut milk
  • 2 bird's eye chillies (optional)

  • 1 chicken stock pot (and hot water topped up to the line with hot water)


  1. Optionally saute the onions in a little oil or butter.
  2. Add all the remaining ingredients to the soup maker jug.
  3. Add hot water up to the MAX line.
  4. Set the soup maker off on chunky.
  5. At the end of the soup making cycle, optionally, semi-blend it to get a smoother and thicker soup while still keeping some of the texture of a chunky soup.
  6. Season if required and optionally garnish with your favourite soup topping.


Chicken - it's possible to use raw or cooked chicken in a Ninja soup maker. For most other soup makers, you will need to add cooked chicken. This is a great way to use up leftover chicken from another meal.

Chunky or Smooth? - it's your choice whether you enjoy this soup chunky or smooth. If you decide to go for smooth, and want a thick soup, add some more potatoes and/or chicken at the beginning.
