1 tsp garlic and herb seasoning

3 garlic cloves, chopped

3 medium chopped tomatoes

¼ tsp curry powder

Thoroughly wash the tripe and remove all the fat before cutting it into medium slices and put it in a pot. Add enough water to cover the pot and add salt, the lemon wedge, ginger, garlic and herb season.

tripe (1)

Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to the lowest. Let the tripe simmer until it is cooked through. Remove all stock from the pot.

Add the oil and garlic to the pot and increase the heat. Fry for about two minutes. Add the onion and curry powder. Fry for another two minutes until onions are semi fried.
