Method

20 mins
 
Rinse the prunes, slice them in half and remove the pips.

Simmer the prunes in a saucepan with the water until they are quite soft – then drain (it shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes.)

In a frying pan, heat the peanut oil over medium heat and fry the prunes with the lemon zest and the cardamom seeds –for a couple of minutes.

Pour the pureed tomatoes into a saucepan, add the prunes, the spices and the zest and simmer for about 10 minutes.

Check and correct the seasoning, adding a little sugar if it’s too sour – often tomatoes can be just that little bit too sour.

Serve with the rice.
