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.
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:
Even better Day 2!
Happy Birthday, Melissa!
