    JanetB-KY's Note:

    Posting this for ZWT 2006, this is a typical South African Curry. For those who dislike Coconut Milk in curries try this one; it is coconut milk free. This is served over rice or with a bread such as Chapatis.

    1. 1
      Heat the oil in a large pot; over high heat, fry the onions and garlic, stirring continuously; add the spices and continue stirring for a minute.
    2. 2
      Reduce heat slightly; add the meat and fry it until it is browned on all sides; (this may be easier if you remove the onions and set them aside, then return them to the pot after the meat is browned.).
    3. 3
      Add all remaining ingredients except the apricot jam and yogurt (or buttermilk).
    4. 4
      Cover & Reduce heat; simmer on low heat, stirring occasionally, until everything is tender, approximately an hour.
    5. 5
      Stir in jam and yogurt (or buttermilk) a few minutes before serving.
    6. 6
      Serve with traditional Curry Garnishes such as Chutney, Peanuts, sliced Bananas and dates.

      WOW- so good! I've made some great curries, but the African ones never tasted quite like how I hoped. This recipe is among the best though. I didn't change a thing, and I wouldn't want to. Thanks for sharing.

      Definately a winning recipe. I have had this marked since ZWT was in Africa. Glad that I finally got to try it. I garnished it with banana and finely chopped peanuts.

      Yup, this was a definite hit in my house. Hubby and kids all devoured it, asking for seconds before the 'firsts' were totally done! I used boneless chicken thighs, zucchini instead of eggplant and 1 tsp crushed dried chilies since I had no fresh (heavy on the other spices too), and it was delish. Buttermilk is a lovely touch, never used it instead of yogurt before, but will again. A perfect meal for these 30 Celsius days we've been having on the Canadian prairie lately. Thanks!!
