- A meat curry with coconut. The meat is cut in strips, simmered in coconut milk with chopped ginger, coriander, garlic and sliced onion for 45 minutes. The solids are strained and fried in ghee, adding ground fenugreek and poppy seed until all dry and golden. The liquid, plus more coconut milk if required, is added back, and all simmered with lemon or lime leaves until tender. The leaves are removed and lime juice and seasoning added before serving.
