Fry bay leaf, red chili, cardamom, cinnamon, and cloves for a few
seconds. Add onion and fry until richly browned but not burnt, 18 to
20 minutes, stirring constantly.
3. Stir in ginger, garlic, green chili, turmeric, cumin, and sugar.

Add the potatoes and simmer, covered, until both meat and potatoes

curdle the sauce, detracting from its appearance and texture.) Stir
in garam masala. Decorate with onion rings and cilantro.

Food Tips of the Week
Recognise the difference between hunger and thirst. At times when going through a hectic day, you imagine you feel hunger but if truth be told you just need a restorative tumbler of water or cranberry juice.

Some low carb diet tips:
* Know what is in your food
Be sceptical of food packaging that boasts 'low carb' - check the nutritional information on the reverse of the can or package. Some are only a little decreased and in some instances still higher than a competitors normal brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are just the same.
