Spicy Kielbasa, Tomato and Chili Curry

 I know... I know... ANOTHER kielbasa dish!  I have really enjoyed working with this ingredient and playing around with it's versatility.  Actually to tell you the truth, this was not even supposed to be a recipe I was going to do for the blog.  I was just cooking something quick to give my husband a "meat" dish to eat with the rice and vegetables curries (Mild Potato Curry and Okra Curry) we had as leftovers.  Since the kielbasa is already precooked I just needed to brown it and and add some spices to it.  When I started to slice the kielbasa I realized that this dish may intrigue some of you so I grabbed my camera. The entire dish took only a few minutes at the stove to make and I winged it when it came to the ingredients.  Since it tasted fantastic, I was so happy that I decided to take the pictures of the step by step process so I could share it.  It complimented our rice and curry meal perfectly, but it would go great with naan, roti, bread, noodles... almost anything. If you like kielbasa and love spicy dishes this one is a winner.

1lb of you favorite Kielbasa
1 medium onion chopped
2-3 green chilies chopped
1 Tbs of ginger-garlic-paste or 1/2 Tbs each
2 cups of grape tomatoes (I don't recommend using canned tomatoes)
1/2 tsp turmeric
red chili flakes to taste
1 tsp of paprika
salt and black pepper to taste
1 tsp of canola oil
Slice your kielbasa into 1/2 inch slices and chop onions and chilies.   Heat canola oil in frying pan and add the onions and chilies to brown for  2-3 minutes.  Then add the kielbasa and cook for another 2-3 minutes to brown.  Next add the turmeric, chili, ginger and garlic.  Allow all ingredients to cook for 2-3 minutes.

Then add the grape tomatoes and paprika.  Fry for 2-3 minutes until the tomatoes start to pop and some of their juices come out to flavor the dish. Season with salt and pepper as needed.  Eat with rice, noodles, bread.  Enjoy.
