Ingredients :

850 g lean steak

3 medium size potatoes

200 g orka

1 cup onion which is roughly chopped

5 cloves crushed garlic

3 teaspoons finely chopped ginger

1 teaspoon ground turmeric

Cut up the steak into cubes of about 3 cm. Remove the potato skins and also cut into cubes. Halve the okra lengthways if it is too big, otherwise keep it whole without cutting. Using a food processor, mix the ginger, garlic, paprika, turmeric and the chili and process them into a thick paste.

In the last 10~15 minutes, remove the wok cover so that the sauce can reduce and becomes thicken. Add salt according to taste, garlic, chives before serving with white steamed rice.
