note..As you cook this curry keep adding drizzles of oil and the odd drop of water to loosen the ingredients with. Do not worry if you add a little too much oil, it may float to the top but this is good because it is not a dish to eat daily don't worry about it. DO worry though if you add too much water, only add little drops here and there as you want your curry loosely thick NOT a stew.

Grind the diced medium onion in a blender.

It should look like a runny paste.

Now grind the ginger and garlic in the same way (you may need to add a little water but only a tiny drop).

You can take half of the curry and put it into a dish - leave it to cool a little before you cover and refrigerate it. Never put hot food straight into a fridge.
