DIRECTIONS

  • Select a deep pot (black pot if possible).
  • Place oil in pot and bring to heat (not too hot).
  • Add onions, green peppers, black peppers corns, garlic, bay leaves, mixed herbs, coriander, paprika, anise seeds and cinnamon bark.
  • Once the onions are translucent and the mixture has formed a nice paste, add a bit of water and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Add your meat and mushrooms and cook for 45 minutes on medium heat (enough to bubble); make sure there is enough liquid.
  • Add tomato paste, puree and sugar; stir well and let simmer for 40 minutes (do not add liquid after this point again, as it will take from the flavour).
  • Add all the veggies except gem squash and cook for 20 minutes.
  • Add gems (cut in half, seeds taken out, sprinkled with salt and white pepper inside and placed inside down).
  • Simmer until gems are soft and sauce is thick (like a stew).
  • Serve on rice.
