CURRY PASTE (FOR MEAT) BY SHEILA....LoungeLIzard

1/2 cup butter (1/4 lb.)
4-6 cloves garlic
4 Tbsp. chopped ginger
2 green peppers - chopped fine
2 medium onions - chopped fine
2 Tbsp. curry powder
2 Tbsp. turmeric
2 tsp. salt
1 can tomato paste

TO ADD AT THE END:
1 bunch cilantro
1 tsp. Masala

Melt butter, saute garlic and ginger for ~ 5 minutes in a Dutch oven/large saucepan with a lid.
Careful not to burn. HINT: easy way to peal ginger is to scape it with a spoon.

Add onions, green peppers, tomato paste and simmer slowly covered for ~ 1 hour.
Stir often.

Add all the spices and cook low for another 10 to 15 minutes.

Add chicken (or meat) using about 1 cup of the sauce and simmer on low for 20 - 30 minutes until
done. May add more water to produce more sauce.
Add cilantro (vary amount to taste) and masala.

Serve with rice.

I usually divide it up into 1 cup portions and freeze it...one cup is usually good for
1 full chicken breast. Add a little water to thin it down for more sauce.
Can also be used when a recipe calls for Curry Paste as in soups or where ever it is
required.
