So to last nights dinner. I absolutely love curries. Stewing beef or lamb is ideal for this recipe.
- 1 Onion, chopped
- A few cloves of garlic
- A thumb size piece of fresh ginger grated
- 1 stick of celery finely chopped
- 1 carrot finely chopped
- 600g of meat of your choice
- 1 tin of full fat coconut milk
- 1 tsp of turmeric
- 1 dessertpoons of chilli powder
- 3 dessertspoons of madras curry powder
- Preheat your oven to 170 deg C
- Gently fry the onion, the garlic and ginger in some coconut oil in an oven proof pot on your hob. After a few minutes, add the celery and the carrot and fry gently till all the veggies are soft.
- Add the meat and thoroughly brown it. Add the turmeric and coconut milk and then cover the meat with boiling water.
- Season with salt and pepper, place the lid on the pot and transfer to the oven for 1.5 hours or until the meat is tender. Cooking time will depend on the cut of meat you use, stewing beef will likely take 2.5 hours.
- At this point I take out the kids portion as they don’t like spicy food and then I add the chilli and curry powder. The spices you can play around with to your liking. I usually make this the day or night before eating as I find the flavour improves dramatically.
- Add any extra non starchy veg to the pot about 30 minutes before cooking finishes to bulk up (aubergine or mushrooms are good)
In the photo, it’s served with cauli mash (I can’t believe it’s not spud!), spinach and a big blob of Greek yoghurt.
