Prepare the accompagnement:

– Bananas: cut into slices and drizzle with lemon juice so that they do not darken.

– Pineapple: peel and cut into small pieces

– Apples: Peel, remove the core and cut into slices. Cook in a pan with butter and keep warm until ready to serve.

– Indian cooked rice: throw rice in boiling water and cook for 8 to 10 minutes.

– Coconut powder very useful to soothe the taste buds in case you have been heavy handed on the curry.
