    Default Green Tomato Curry

    Not so much a recipe, as a method for dealing with a glut of green tomatoes. I picked two buckets of green tomatoes, mostly plum type, and used this to process one bucket.

    Rinse and chop the tomatoes into a very large (jam) pan, with about half a cup of oil, adding a dozen onions, and three heads of garlic (I got bored after 3 heads !). Added one 100g pack of Rajah garam masala, purchased from our local Asian supermarket, a heaped tablespoon of turmeric, and salt ...

    When it was well stewed - about an hour of cooking, I blitzed it with my hand blender to make it smooth.

    The sauce has been frozen off in small quantities for use as required, adding other ingredients to make finished meals.

    This made two gallons.

    As a base curry sauce, this is my most impressive concoction yet. I still have another bucket of tomatoes in the conservatory, and tonnes more on the allotment.
