    CraftScout's Note:

    This recipe is from one of my new favorite cookbooks, Extending the Table. The notes on this recipe say that this Swahili dish is served by a restaurant in the heart of Nairobi. I have only modified it to make the recipe fit into Zaar format, to preserve the authenticity of the recipe. This is a very mild, very easy to make curry.

      Very tasty! Made some subs for missing ingredients but still came out excellent.<br/><br/>Had to use a can of unsalted diced tomatoes since I didn't have whole and used a little ketchup instead of plain tomato paste. <br/><br/>I messed up part of the cooking instructions for the onions/beef (Forgot to put the oil first, whoops!) but it didn't seem to matter much. It's not a very spicy curry, which is perfect for me, since I'm kind of a spice-wimp. X3 but it's wonderful over some hot rice!

      I agree with everyone else's thoughts on the blandness. I quadrupled the curry, doubled the cinnamon, and added some hot pepper to spice it up. I served it with lime-cilantro rice and it was very good. Maybe the curry I had was just too bland - like some have suggested - curry paste may be a better option.

      Just what I was looking for. I doubled the meat and most spices, 4x the curry powder, added a few fresh hot peppers and fresh grated ginger. Also I used chick peas and carrots and 3 fresh tomatoes but didn't have paste. I also forgot to add the cilantro but no matter, everyone loved it! Fast and easy, thanks so much! A keeper for sure!
