This recipe finds its harmony in the way the bold, bursting flavor of curry interacts with the soft sweetness of bananas and smooth yogurt.

Directions

  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.

A pretty decent starting point. I had to halve the recipe because it makes a whole lot (it still made a lot, even halved) and used canned tomatoes instead of diced fresh. The end result was hot but not as flavorful as I'd like. I tried to tweak the spices to suit my taste a little more, but something seems missing... the idea of a banana curry recipe is good, but I'm not quite sure this is the one.

try adding garam masala and cayenne pepper, mmmmm. Super yummy! i used raisins instead of coconut and used a whole banana, i served it on top of oatmeal for a slap in the face breakfast. And i made it for one, but was able to get 2 servings out of it, woot, woot!
