Original recipe makes 6



Sprinkle the lemon juice and salt over the meat. Mix the onion, garlic and chili together well. Heat the ghee in a heavy saucepan over medium heat and fry the onion mixture for 2 minutes. Add the coriander, cumin, turmeric, ginger and pepper, stir well and cook another 2-3 minutes. Add the beef and lemon juice; stir well to coat the meat with the spices. Cook 5-10 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and beef stock, bring to a boil then cover and simmer gently 30-40 minutes until the meat begins to get tender. Sprinkle in the garam masala and cook for a further 10 minutes. The gravy should by this stage be very thick, if it is not remove the lid from the pan and increase the heat to boil off excess moisture until the gravy thickens.

Made this several times for several different people. Has always been a winner!

Added mushrooms to mine as I didn't have much beef. Smells great with freshly ground spices. Tasty without much fuss or bother. Better than our local takeaway.

Very good and very easy to make...will have to add more dried red chillies to make it more spicy

Good stuff and not to complicated to make either.

Yum love this quick, easy n simple. I like to complicate things though (add some crushed dark choc chips and maybe half tin of chopped toms). And even a sultana or two ;)
