2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 beef bouillon cubes
1 teaspoon curry powder
2 tablespoons oil
4 tablespoons buttermilk (lala)
2 cups water
What to do:
On a chopping board, finely chop the garlic cloves, put the garlic on the osso-buco, add black pepper, paw paw purée and set aside to marinate for about an hour or two.
In a pan over medium heat add in the oil, add in onions and sauté until almost golden brown. Go in with the marinated osso-buco and cook for about five minutes or until you seal the pores. Add the buttermilk, bouillon cubes, curry powder and tomato paste, mix well for about five minutes then add in the two cups of water and bring to a boil.
Cook for another ten minutes or until all the liquid is evaporated, sauce becomes very thick coats the beef and the beef is super soft. Finish off with some lime juice and serve with your preferred side like rice or ugali.
