3 tbsp. butter or margarine
1 c. chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced, about 1/4 tsp. (I use more)
1 lb. ground beef
1 tbsp. curry powder
1 1/2 tsp. salt
dash pepper
dash cinnamon (optional)
dash ginger (optional)
dash tumeric (optional)
2 c. cooked or canned tomatoes
2 potatoes, diced very small
2 c. frozen peas or green beans

Melt butter in wide skillet and add onion and garlic. Cook over medium-high heat about 5 minutes. Add ground beef and cook until brown. Strain extra fat if any (I use paper towels to blot to remove extra fat). Add remaining ingredients and cook 25 minutes, covered, on low heat. Serve over hot rice.

Serves 5-6

Note: The extra dashes of spices augment the curry powder's flavor and color (a large mixture of spices is traditional in Pakistani food). If you don't have all or any of the extra dashes make the dish anyway, but add a little more curry powder).
