Simply delicious and effortless! ‘Kavurma’ will give your dish extra flavor!!!
Did you know…
“Kavurma” is basically cooked and preserved meat (pork, sheep, goat, beef or buffalo). First it is cooked in its own fat in a pot along with some salt and spices. Then the meat is preserved for months in containers covered in animal fat.

Heat oil in a large frying pan with heavy bottom and sauté garlic, peppers and onion until fragrant and tender. Add kavurma, stir for a minute or so and then add tomato, basil and season with salt and pepper. Simmer until your sauce thickens. Add a little water if necessary.
