  • 2 Tbsp ground coriander
  • 2 Tbsp ground cumin
  • 3/4 cup lowfat plain yogurt
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 0.90 kg kangaroo, diced *
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 1 can (12 oz) crushed tomatoes

  • 114.29 g spinach


Combine coriander, cumin, yogurt and lime juice in a large bowl. Add the kangaroo meat and mix together. Cover the mixture and place in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours, or overnight.

Heat oil in a frying pan; cook the garlic and onions until they are soft. Stir in the kangaroo mixture, together with the potatoes, tomatoes, paste and seasoning. Bring to a slow boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 1 to 1½ hours, or until tender.

Check the seasoning. If you need to, add more spices to taste. Add the spinach and simmer for a further 3 to 5 minutes or until the spinach has wilted.


* Exotic meats such as buffalo and venison can substitute for kangaroo.

Serve with rice or Nann bread and chutney, if desired.
