 Ingredients List

  • 2 tb Vegetable oil

  • 1 lb Sirloin steak (or substitute
  • -chicken); diced
  • 3 Small; hot green chiles,
  • -such as Serranos; seeds

"This Tanzanian specialty has the tantalizing aroma of cloves in addition
to the curry spices. Make certain that you select green bananas for this
dish, or your curry will be overly mushy. Chicken may be substituted for
the beef and the cooking time reduced to a total of 40 minutes."

Heat the oil in a skillet and saute the onion until it is light brown,
about 5 minutes. Add the steak and saute for 1 minute, then add the chiles,
salt, Malawi Curry Powder, and cloves. Saute for 10 minutes, stirring

Add the tomatoes and the water and simmer, uncovered, for 40 minutes,
stirring occasionally. The sauce should be reduced considerably. Add the
bananas and cook until both the meat and the bananas are tender, 20 minutes
or more. Serve with white rice, sliced tomatoes, and curry condiments.
