Remarks
You can easily replace palm oil with olive oil, for a tastier dish tomato coulis by tomato sauce for pizzas.

It's a meal which can easily be re-heated or frozen. So do not hesitate to make a good deal of it, even if it's for the first time.
Keeping
Several days in the fridge, in a closed jar.
