Meat and Potato Curry Recipe

Meat and Potato Curry Recipe

Ingredients :

1.5 kg lean stewing steak

1 teaspoon black mustard seeds

1/4 cup oil

1/2 teaspoon fenugreek seeds

5 cloves garlic, chopped

1 tablespoon fresh ginger, chopped finely

3 medium onions, sliced finely

1 1/2 teaspoons ground turmeric

2 tablespoons ground coriander

1 tablespoon ground cumin

2.5 teaspoons chili powder

3 teaspoons salt

2 tablespoons vinegar

2 teaspoons garam masala

2 tablespoons extra vinegar

750 g potatoes, peeled and cubed

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves

 

Method :

Trim and discard the fat and gristle from the steak. Cut into small bite-size cubes. Heat a wok with oil and fry the mustard seeds until they pop. Add fenugreek seeds, ginger, garlic and onion. Fry over moderate heat. Stir occasionally with a wooden spoon until the onions turn brown. Add turmeric and fry for another minutes. Add coriander, cumin and chili powder and stir for a minute or so. Then add salt and vinegar and stir until liquid dries up. Sprinkle in the garam masala and mix well. Add the cubed meat, stirring so that all the pieces are coated with the spice mixture. If there is much of the spice sticking to the base of the pan, add the extra vinegar and stir, scrapping as much as possible from the base of the pan. Reduce heat, cover with well-fitting lid and let meat and spice mixture simmer for 1 1/2 - 2 hours or until meat is tender. Depending on the type of meat used, it may be necessary to add a little water. Add the cubed potatoes, cover once more and cook for 20 minutes or until done. Sprinkle with fresh coriander leaves and serve hot with white rice or Indian bread.
