  1. Fry the onions in olive oil until browned. Add the cinnamon and the bay leaf. Continue stirring and add the ginger, paprika, curry powder, sugar, salt and garlic. Continue stirring for 2 minutes. Mixture will become much like a paste.

Very easy, great as it is, or as a base recipe - I've added various veg to it depending what's at the bottom of the fridge! Enjoyed by all the family - 14 Mar 2012
