Whats Cookin 5

From: Susie Sams

Can be made with 1-2lbs of any of these meats (chicken, lamb, beef, fish, prawns) or if you want a vege meal, use potatoes or lentils perhaps. I usually use less meat than this – we are skimpy meat eaters.
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tomato, diced (canned whole/chopped tomato works fine as well)
½ t coriander
½ t cumin seeds (or powder)
½ t mustard seeds
1-2 t curry powder (any heat)
1 t tumeric
2 t garam masala (an Indian spice)
Salt and pepper to taste
1 onion, diced
2 T oil
1 can coconut milk
chicken, beef, etc broth

Heat oil and add onions, tomatoes, and garlic. When onion is transparent add cumin and mustard. Let stand on heat for 1 ½ minutes. Add meat or vege and stir to mix all contents. Let sit for 1 min. Add curry powder or mix and stir to coat. Add coconut milk or broth and simmer for ½ hour on low heat.

Serves great over rice or with roti (just like a tortilla) if you want the cultural experience.
