Add onions, cook a bit. Stir in jalapeno pepper, ginger,
garlic, and white wine. Cook a bit more.

Add coconut milk and stock, bring to a boil, then reduce to
a simmer.Salt to taste.

Stew:

Here you can add just about anything. Lamb, left over chicken. Peas,
potatoes, yams, carrots, onions, green peppers, chick peas. That's the
idea of it being a stew. Add your desired ingredients to the simmering
base seperately so they all end not overcooked after about 30 - 45 minutes
of simmering.

Serve over basmati rice.
