    Kerela beef curry
    Serves 4 (1/4 HEB or 2 syns per serve)

    500g lean cubed beef
    1 tbsp olive oil (6 syns/HEB)
    1 large potato
    3 large tomatoes
    1 large onion
    4 cloves garlic
    2 inch sq ginger
    7 birds eye chillies
    1/2 cup frozen peas
    1/2t turmeric
    1t ground cumin
    1t ground coriander
    1t cinnamon
    1t chilli powder
    1t curry powder
    2 whole dried chillies
    1t black mustard seeds
    1t garam masala
    1 heaped tsp tamarind paste
    8 cardamon pods
    Salt & pepper
    1/2 beef stock cube
    Fresh coriander

    Season the meat with salt, pepper & 1t curry powder. Set aside for a couple of hours.

    Very finely chop the onions, garlic, ginger. I use a food processor to make it easier. Chop the tomatoes in the processor separately. Cut the chillies in half lengthways, leave the seeds in if you like it hot. I do! Chop the potato into chunky cubes.

    Heat the olive oil and soften the onions, garlic, ginger and chillies. When soft and a little caramelised, add the meat, stir well and allow to brown slightly. Add all the spices (except garam masala) and the tomatoes. Season and add stock cube. Turn heat down to simmer and cook for about 45 minutes. Add the chopped potatoes and cook for another 20 minutes until they’re soft.

    Throw in the coriander, frozen peas and stir in the tamarind paste and garam masala. Serve over rice with lots of veggies!

    thanks for the post Honey - I saw this on your diary and thought it looked yummy! - and no coconut! We went travelling in India about 10 years ago Kerala is full of the blummin things, and most of the food we ate there had it in, even had chips fried in coconut oil! mind you, my hair was lovely.

    LOL! Glad you like it. There are actually a lot of curries without coconut milk in it, it's usually yogurt that's used. Sometimes I stir in some yogurt at the end.

    LOL! Leftovers are the best! Especially curries, when I reheat it I feel like I'm having a takeaway!
