Tomato Curry
From "Nigella Kitchen" by Nigella Lawson

2 Tbsp oil
2 Large Onions, chopped
1 tsp kosher salt
4 cloves garlic, chopped
3 1/2 pints cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp English Mustard
1 tsp hot chili powder
1 tsp garam masala
1 1/2 cup frozen peas

Heat oil in saucepan, add onions sprinkle with salt and stir frequently over low to medium heat for about 7 minutes. Stir in garlic, then add tomatoes. Add spices, cover, and cook 20 min over low. Cook peas in another pan in boiling salted water, drain and add to tomatoes for the last 5 min of cook time. (I guess cooking it all together makes the colors less pretty. Meh)

Freezing note: cook the tomatoes but don't do the peas. Can be frozen up to 3 months. Then reheat and add the peas like in the recipe

Serves 4 with coconut rice
