This recipe was shared with me by a friend from South Africa. I'm usually not a lover of curry but this was so good!

It's a very good recipe, pretty simple, and fairly common ingredients. I made it with lean ground beef, fresh diced tomatoes (instead of canned to avoid the sodium), and instant white rice (to cut the 40-45 minute last cook time to about 10 minutes).

Next time I would cut down the oil significantly--you don't need 1/2 cup to saute the onions and garlic, and it leaves the final product a bit slicker than I prefer. Also, I would cut the black pepper a little and add a little hot pepper.
