To commence, retrieve your new/old wok from the hidden depths of the kitchen cupboard, you know, the one that was given to you many moons ago and you never even took out of the box? That's the one.
Light your fire, small sticks are on order for a fast, hot heat. Season wok and brown meat.
Saute onion, garlic and then...crushed spices/paste. Add some chopped tomatoes and cover with water. Allow the flames to die down a little..
Simmer until thick and it's calling your name. It's nearly there. Add a dollop of cream if you so desire and take some time to flick the separated tomato skins into a nearby bush while you wait, ah, the beauty of cooking outside..
Roll out some naan bread dough, made with kefir milk and cook directly over the heat. Glowing coals are best but in their absence, a small flame will suffice.
Enjoy your meal.
This is your dinner.
You made it without any electricity or gas.
It's cooked through. And hot! Quite astounding isn't it?
Food cooked over flames tastes a thousand times better than it's conveniently fueled cousins, absolutely!
