This turned out to be a really flavourful dish, after a few changes and an addition. I used butter and only about 2 tbs. I added all the sauce ingredients to the frying pan with the onions and continued to cook them until all was well blended. I only used 4 oz tomato paste, anything more would have totally overpowered the subtle peanut flavour. There was still something missing, so I added 2 tbs curry paste, and voila! Fantastic! Just what was needed. Then, carried on in oven as instructed. Worthy all 5 stars after these little alterations, for us.
