My absolute favourite breadspread. All the best flavours combined. Like heaven on bread. Sometimes I even fry tofu in it so it takes on its flavour. It is marvellous.
You need to have:
250g margarine (roughly, I often just take what's left in the box)
1-2 garlic cloves
2 tbsp ginger paste or 3-4cm ginger root
2 tsp tomato paste
2-3 tsp coriander
2-3 tsp curry
1 tsp allspice
1 tsp paprika, sweet
1/2 tsp paprika, spicy
1/2 tsp curcuma
salt, pepper and sugar to taste
oil to fry
You need to do:
Peel onion, garlic and ginger and chop. You are going to blend everything in the end so you don't need to make super small pieces. Fry everything in oil. If you are using ginger paste, fry onions and garlic until cooked and then "caramelise" with the paste.
Put margarine, tomato paste and spices in a blender-safe jar. Add onion, garlic and ginger and blend. Add salt, pepper and sugar to taste.
