  2. Heat 1 tsp of oil in a pan, add spice from the whole spice sachet and cook for 20 seconds.
  3. Add the meat, prawns or vegetables and brown lightly before adding the base sauce. Simmer for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Stir in the main sauce (and fish if using) and simmer for another 3-5 minutes or until the meat or other is cooked through.
