Before you start

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.


  1. Heat the oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, then sauté 2-3 min, with stirring, until the onion softens, paying attention not to let the garlic burn.
  2. Add the meat. Cook about 5 min, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon, until the meat loses its pink colour. Add the curry, other spices, and grated ginger. Cook 1 min.
  3. Add the potatos, carrots, tomatoes, and water. Mix well. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat, cover and simmer 30 min, or until the potatoes are done. Add water if necessary to maintain a moist environment.
  4. Stir in the peas and cook an additional 5 min Adjust the seasoning, then serve on the warmed plates.
