This is a popular dish from the coastal region of Karnataka, India using Quick Curry Powder (bafat, see recipe, above). It is traditionally prepared with lamb, but chicken may be substituted and the cooking time reduced by 7 minutes.

Ingredients


  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 tablespoon ghee (clarified butter--optional)

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • 6 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 1-inch piece ginger, minced

  • 1 tablespoon bafat (see recipe above)

  • 1 pound minced meat (lamb or substitute chicken)

  • Salt to taste

  • 1/4 cup cilantro or mint leaves



Instructions


In a skillet, heat the oil for 1 minute, add the ghee and the onion and cook over medium heat until the onions wilt, about 1 minute. Add the garlic and ginger and fry the mixture for 1 minute. Add the bafat powder, lower the heat, and simmer for 1 minute.

Add the minced meat, mix well, and cook for 20 minutes over low heat. Sprinkle with cold water from time to time. Add the salt. Garnish with cilantro or mint leaves.
