Though this does not look anything like a traditional gravy, it is what we called it in my home when I was growing up.


  • 3 plum tomatoes
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 medium green bell pepper
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder (Nigerian curry powder)
  • 1 big stock cube
  • Ground pepper and salt (to taste)
  • 1 cooking spoon vegetable oil (for frying)

Before you make the sauce:

  1. Wash all vegetables.
  2. Cut the onions into thin quarter slices.
  3. Remove the seeds from the tomatoes and cut them in the same manner as the onions.
  4. Cut the green pepper into tiny pieces.

Cooking Directions

  1. Pour the vegetable oil into a clean dry pot and let it heat up.
  2. Add the onions and fry for about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the tomatoes and fry for another 2 minutes.
  4. Add the green pepper and stir for about half a minute.
  5. Crush the stock cube and add to the rest of the ingredients.
  6. Add ground pepper, curry powder and salt to taste. Stir very well and add a few drops of water.
  7. Cover and leave to simmer for one minute. That's it!

Curry gravy is perfect for boiled potatoes (Irish or sweet potatoes) and Boiled White Yam.
