|Instructions||This is a mind blowingly delicious curry, whatever the heat, and it is mega healthy. The lenghty part is the sauce. The quick bits , the curry itself takes relatively no time at all. You could make the sauce in advance and freeze it)Either way, you will not be disappointed!!
Slap on your favourite CD, crack a lager, and enjoy the whole process...
Chop the onions
Peel, slice and cream the garlic
pulverise the ginger (grating will do)
Heat the ghee to nearly (be careful) smoking point. Add onions and stir immediately, enjoying their fragrance. Stir vigourously and constantly and as the heat anarchy settles, reduce heat. Add both garlic and ginger, stir in, reduce heat further so you can get on with the next bit without burning anything.
Add all ground spice and enough water into a separate container and mix into a smooth paste.
Raise temperature of pot, to dangerous levels again, and add this spice mixture. Stir constantly over this very high heat for two minutes. (TIP) if it sticks, add just a touch of water, reduce heat, and this should lift off the the sticky spice. Reduce heat. DO NOT BURN. NEVER BURN!!
Add a huge spurt of tomatoe puree, the can of tomatoes, and the real tomatoes. Also add a load of water, sea salt (one teasp) one veggie oxo. (BEEF, what the hell....)
And reduce heat to a simmer....for three hours...constantly check and stir.
Boring, I know, but get on with your life meantime. 3 hours later, (could be 2,taste and see).
Meanwhile, Cook potatoes, cube into bite size bits (no bigger). SEIVE AND LEAVE FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.
Chop the fresh coriander.
Chop the fresh bird eye chilies and..
when you are ready to eat in say..20 minutes ?

THE EXCITING BIT. You
