A recipe brought into Mozambique by the Goaon people. Now adopted by them and it is amazing. Not by any means a common dish, it's a very fragrant curry without the burn, yet a punch in the mouth of flavor.

A bit of work but not too bad, and as always, timing is critical in some of the steps.

This is for people who are curious and have a Joie de vivre.
