Here was my scenario;

I opened the fridge and saw the following, half kilo meat, fruits, yogurt, leftover kunde, homemade coconut milk, half a packet of milk, lime and lemons. What meal am I supposed to make out of it?

I closed the fridge and sat back at the sofa and watched Mark Wiens latest Youtube episode and voila!


  1. Half a kilo of meat
  2. Ginger & garlic paste – 1 tablespoon
  3. Black pepper – half a teaspoon
  4. Chilli paste – half a teaspoon
  5. Juice from 3  limes
  6. Coconut oil, 1 tablespoon
  7. Vinegar, 1 tablespoon
  8. 250 ml mala
  9. Tomato paste, 1 tablespoon
  10. Salt to taste
  11. Paprika, a dash
  12. Tumeric, a dash
  13. A lot of onions – I used 4 large ones
  14. A pinch of cumin seeds
  15. A stick of cinnamon


  • Wash the meat and dry it completely
  • Using only half of the mala, mix everything except onions, tomato paste, cumin, and cinnamon stick in a bowl.
  • Let it sit overnight or at least 4 hours because this is red meat.
  • Heat up your cooking pan and add cooking oil
  • As the oil heats up, chop up your onions. Add the cumin seeds and cinnamon sticks and let them sizzle a bit but not burn.
  • Add your onions with salt and let it fry till golden brown.
  • Add your marinated meat plus marinade, mix well, cover and let the marinade/juices cook down or until it starts to stick to the sides and the bottom.
  • Reduce the heat, add the tomato paste and the remainder of the mala.
  • Mix well and cover, let it continue simmering until the oil separates at the top of the sauce.
  • Served with Ugali and kunde.
