Pap served with beef bones and greens.

Bones: Boil until cooked, add onions together with curry, stir a bit until soft. Add tomatoes, let simmer, stirring in between until well blended with meat. You can add chicken or beef stock/cubes. Let cook until you have a consistency gravy.

Greens: cut your greens, heat butter in a pot, add greens, salt and stir fry for 2-3 minutes. Using butter makes greens more softer and gives a good flavour.
