Remembering to bring the recipe  
Hi peeps,

just putting up a recipe I promised Nicci I'd be making when I come over (Yes, it's past 1AM, yes, my train leaves at 3.40AM, NO, I've no intention of sleeping)

Chicken with coconut (kuku paka)

For marinating the chicken

1 tablespoon peeled and finely grated fresh ginger
4 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed to a pulp

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon lemon juice

For the sauce

180 g/6 oz tomatoes, chopped
140 g/5 oz onions, peeled and chopped
2 bird's eye chilies, chopped (piri piri)
2 tablespoons freshly grated coconut or grated frozen or desiccated
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon ground cumin
3 tablespoons corn or peanut oil (I occasionally use whatever I have - like sunflower seed oil)
