Fry it all together over MEDIUM HEAT, until all the WATER IS GONE, and the mixture is SOFT and starting to turn DARK REDDISH BROWN, and stick to the pan.

Now add the cubed vegetables (** they could be pre-microwaved or steamed) to the spices, and brown gently. Cubed: potatoes, carrots, pumpkins, green beans, peas, red capsicum strips

Next add the sauce ingredients to the vegetables and spices in the pan. Leave to simmer VERY VERY SLOWLY on LOW HEAT, until it is no longer runny. Just before the end, add the coconut milk. If the mixture becomes too runny, keep cooking it until it thickens.
