As needed


1. Heat vegetable oil and cumin seeds in a pan. Stir fry until aromatic and add the ground meat. When the colour of the meat has changed, remove from the pan.
2. Melt butter in the pan, and stir fry the onion over low heat for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Add tomato and stir fry for 5-6 more minutes.
3. Add the cooked ground meat, watermelon, water, red chili pepper, bay leaf, and soup stock cube, and cook over medium heat for 15-20 minutes.
4. Turn off the heat. Remove the red chilli pepper and the bay leaf from the pan. Add your cube or powder of curry roux and simmer for 2 -3 minutes. Add the garam masala and coarsely ground black pepper for the final touches.
5. Serve rice on plates and pour the curry on top. Sprinkle the green peas on. It's done!
