"This recipe finds its harmony in the way the bold, bursting flavor of curry interacts with the soft sweetness of bananas and smooth yogurt. The amounts of the different spices in the powder mixture are meant to be guidelines - have fun experimenting with your own intuitive combinations. Serve with basmati rice."

  1. Heat the sunflower oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the onions, and cook until the onions have softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle in the curry powder, cumin, turmeric, salt, sugar, ginger, chili powder, cinnamon, and black pepper. Cook and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  2. Stir in the curry paste and pressed garlic. Cook for about 1 minute. Pour in the tomato sauce and yogurt, and bring to a simmer. Stir in the diced banana, and simmer gently for 3 minutes. Mix in chopped tomatoes, and continuing to simmer 1 minute more. Stir in the coconut flakes just before serving.
