Measure Ingredient
4 cups Onions; coarsely chopped
30 millilitres Peanut or vegetable oil
2 \N Cloves garlic; minced
1 teaspoon Ginger root; grated, Peeled
2 mediums Zucchinis; quartered Lengthwise
⅓ litre Water
1 cup Cut green beans
2 \N Firm tart green pears or Apples; cored and cubed
½ \N Red bell pepper; coarsely Chopped
1 cup Chopped dried apricots (unsulfered)

1½ tablespoon Ground cumin
1½ tablespoon Ground coriander seeds
1½ teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Turmeric
½ teaspoon Cayenne or other ground Dried red chilies
½ teaspoon Ground fennel seeds
¼ teaspoon Ground cardamom
¼ teaspoon Ground cloves

1. Saute the onions in the oil for 10 min. Stir in the garlic, ginger root, & curry spices, and continue to saute, stirring patiently for about 3 min.

2. Add the zucchini & water, & stir conscientiously to keep the spices from sticking to the pan. Cover the pan & simmer for about 10 min.

3. Mix in the beans, pears, bell peppers & apricots. Simmer gently, covered, for around 30 min. Stir periodically and add a little more water if necessary to prevent sticking.

4. When everything is quite tender, stir in the currants and the conserve.

Taste the curry (yum) and adjust the flavor as you please. Add cayenne or garam masala for spice, lemon juice for tartness, or conserves for sweetness.

5. Serve on rice, topped with peanuts and sliced bananas...and your favourite raita.
