What can be better than eating a curry with a glass of home brewed beer, with friends?
Serve with flatbreads and rice.
For the paste:

- 2 tablespoons tomato puree
- small bunch of coriander
- 1 teaspoon tumeric
- 2 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 2 teaspoons garam masala
- 1 teaspoon coriander seeds
- 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
For the curry:
- 1 onion (peeled and chopped)

Heat the oven to 200 degrees. Place the peppers onto a baking tray, drizzle with a little olive oil and bake for around 10 – 15 minutes. The edges should be slightly charred.
Place the peppers into a food processor with the rest of the paste ingredients, and blitz well.
Heat some oil in a large pan and add the onion and chilli.
Cook for a few minutes and add the paste.

Remove the bay leaves and cardamom pods and add the kale. Mix well and serve.
