This is a recipe from the Food 911 show that Tyler Florence hosted on Food Network. This is a wonderful dish that makes a lot of sauce. I also prefer my food a bit spicier so I add hot curry powder rather than the regular curry and also extra red pepper flakes. This is great served over noodles, rice or just out of the bowl as a soup.
- 3 tablespoons ghee (clarified butter)
- 2 medium onions, chopped
- 1 inch fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped
- 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons tomato paste

- Heat the ghee in a large heavy-bottomed pot over medium-low heat. Add the onions, ginger, and garlic and cook slowly until the onions are very soft, about 15 minutes.
- Add the tomato paste, curry powder, cinnamon stick, and chiles and give it a good stir; season with salt and pepper. Pour in the coconut milk and chicken stock and bring it back to a simmer; cook until the sauce has thickened, about 20 minutes.
