Now reduce the fire to medium,add the roasted powder, and the greens. Mix well and cook for ten more minutes.
Normally weekends are for fish curry but Dh wanted to watch the world cup so he went nearby actually next door to Ralph’s and bought 2 lb+ chicken for just $2 …amazing !Normally we buy fresh fish and that is slightly more expensive and comes to around $30 every week.
