Margaret’s nutty curry sauce

“This is a simple, mild sauce that the whole family loves. For a barbecue, we serve it with steamed asparagus and coconut rice, but it can be used as a curry sauce, too."

1 cup/200g fresh tomatoes, finely chopped
1/2 cup/115g tomato paste
1/2 cup/125g peanut butter
2 cups/500ml water
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon chilli powder or paste (to taste
1 1/2 teaspoons garam masala
3 teaspoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon salt (to taste)
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable seasoning

How to:

1. Put the tomatoes into a small pot and cook on a low heat for a few minutes.

2. Add the tomato paste, peanut butter and water to the pot. Raise the heat and bring to the boil.

3. Lower the heat, and mix in the turmeric, coriander, chilli powder, garam masala, soy sauce, salt, sugar (or sweet chilli sauce) and vegetable seasoning.
