A great British favourite – this curry is full of spice with melt in the mouth beef!
Serves 4 small portions, 2 large
Cooking time: 1 hour 45 minutes
6 dried Kashmiri chillies, seeds shaken out
7500g diced beef/stewing steak
2.5 cm fresh root ginger, peeled
4 whole green chillies, pierced
1 handful fresh coriander, chopped
Basmati rice or Indian breads
1. Place the cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, peppercorns, cumin and Kashmiri chillies into a spice grinder or pestle & mortar, grind until you have a fine powder.
2. Heat the oil in a large pan, add the onions and cook on a gentle heat until softened. Stir in the ground spices with the turmeric, garam masala, salt and a splash of water. Cook for 1 minute.
3. Add the beef and fully coat with the spices, cook until browned all over.
4. In a small food processor blend the ginger, garlic, tomatoes with a splash of water until you have a smooth puree. Add the mixture and green chillies to the beef, bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until all the sauce has almost been absorbed into the beef.
5. Pour in enough water to cover the beef curry, bring to the boil, cover and reduce to a simmer. Cook until the beef is tender, around 1 ¼ hours.
6. Uncover and simmer until you have a thick sauce, season to taste. Serve the curry with a drizzle of cream, a sprinkling of fresh coriander, basmati rice or Indian breads, enjoy!
