During the Olympics this year, the South African athletes have been amazing... particularly Oscar Pistorius, the "blade runner", or "the fastest man on no legs". He is not only tough, persistent, and fast - but very gracious.
My son-in-law made this curry dish for us just before the Olympics began, and I thought it was a good time to share it.
The term “curry” can mean different things to different people - similar to all the different salsas in the US & Mexico. Typically curry is a spicy dish of vegetables and/or meat served with rice. This version is specific to Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Spices are what most people define as “curry” - and they vary region to region.
My son-in-law served his LDS Mission to South Africa years ago. He has never forgotten this specific blend of spices and ingredients in the curry he enjoyed there. In Port Elizabeth, you get your spices from a spice shop - mixed just the way you like them. The woman who wrote this recipe down for him (see below) always ordered hers this way: A mixture of Mutton, Mother-In-Law, Mixed Masala, Garlic & Ginger.
