Melissa’s Birthday Dinner

Basic Meat Curry from “More with Less” Cookbook

Sauté in heavy deep skillet
2 T. of oil
2 onions, finely chopped
1-2 clove of garlic, minced
Blend in small bowl
2 T. lemon juice (or vinegar)
2-4 t. curry powder
Stir curry mixture into sautéed onions and fry lightly for 1-2 minutes. This is a mild curry, and you can add more spices if you want more seasoning (I do! You can add more curry or some of the spices of curry: cloves, cardamom, coriander, ginger, tumeric, cumin, cinnamon).
Add one of the following:
1-3lb. chicken fryer cut into pieces
2 lbs beef, cut into 1″ chunks (we usually do this)
2 lbs lamb, cut into 1″ chunks
2 lbs of fish, cut into chunks,
Stir fry briefly to coat meat with spices.
Add:
2 cans tomato sauce
1 t salt
Bring to a boil and simmer for 1-3 hours (beef and lamb longer than chicken), or 20 minutes for fish. Add liquid if you need it. You can thicken with flour before serving. Sometimes I add in a small can of tomato paste.
Serve over rice. Sprinkle condiments which we put out in small bowls:
peanuts
cut apples
cut bananas
coconut
raisins
Even better Day 2!
Happy Birthday, Melissa!

  1. Happy Birthday Melissa! This sounds really good. I think I will be trying this one.

  2. Is this just regular Indian curry? Happy birthday, Melissa

  3. Hope your birthday was great, Brigette!The answer, not really, since Indian Curry wouldn’t have beef…. :)It’s a mild tomato based curry, sort of like some curries in the Indian buffet, but there isn’t any yogurt (or coconut milk) in there either which a lot of Indian curries have (and ginger too). But, yes, of course, the whole curry thing comes from India, so this is a basic mild curry.I have to say I just pulled out Shelia Lukins All Around the World Cookbook which lists some pretty amazing curry things including some curried rolls that I may just have to try!
