  1. Heat the sunflower oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the onions, and cook until the onions have softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle in the curry powder, cumin, turmeric, salt, sugar, ginger, chili powder, cinnamon, and black pepper. Cook and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  2. Stir in the curry paste and pressed garlic. Cook for about 1 minute. Pour in the tomato sauce and yogurt, and bring to a simmer. Stir in the diced banana, and simmer gently for 3 minutes. Mix in chopped tomatoes, and continuing to simmer 1 minute more. Stir in the coconut flakes just before serving.
