Original recipe uses Mutton and taken from Banana Leaf Temptations cookbook by Chef Devagi Sanmugam.(book was a gift from my mom!)

I substituted mutton for beef as hubby cannot take mutton due to medical reasons. This is semi spicy. As I omitted a large number of fresh red chillies from the recipe. So that Melody can eat too.

The curry dish is very fragrant..the spices really enhances the flavour.



Ingredients
1 kg beef (cut into cubes)
6 tbsp Yoghurt(plain)
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar

250ml plain yoghurt

to blend into a paste
2 red onions
20 cloves of garlic
10 cm ginger
1 red chilli(discard seeds)
100ml water

spices
3 pcs cinnamon stick
10 pcs green cardamon seeds
6 cloves
3 medium red onions(sliced)
1 tbsp aniseed
2.5 tbsp cumin powder
1 tbsp coriander powder

Method
1. Marinate beef cubes with yoghurt and lemon juice for 1 hour.
2. Add blended paste and water into a pot to boil.
3. Add marinated beef to simmer over medium heat for 45 mins till cooked.
4. Heat wok and dry fry spices till fragrant.
5. Add beef, stock and rest of yoghurt to it and cook in the wok.
6. Simmer over medium heat for 10 to 15 mins till gravy thickens.
7. Serve with rice or Naan.

Notes
Original recipe does not have additional yoghurt. She uses more water to cook the mutton. I prefer to have more gravy so I added yoghurt to it. And cook for only 15 mins.

Gina,

I was wondering what to have for dinner tonight, when your curry jumped at me saying 'have me, have me'. :lol:

The above 4 spices - are they to be thrown in whole - no need to grind ?
The aniseed - are they whole too?
For the green cardamon seed - do we need to peel off the green cover?

Thanks Gina.

I just fry it and mix with the cooking. Although Devagi suggested to grind into into powdery form. I don't like the taste of powdery curry. island

every spice is a whole piece. green cardamon..no need to remove anything. just fry the whole thing. whole pieces of spices brings out the flavour very well.

Gina, this curry is so different from the way I usually cook curries. Don't have to stand there constantly frying the paste. Very rich and fragrant with spices. We loved it. :lol:

I notice you have the nice red oil floating on top of your curry. I did not use yoghurt, is that why my curry does not have that oil ? :roll: I use lamb and have cut off most of the fat on it.

actually hor, I love lamb you know..and hubby cannot eat. so I never got the chance to cook at home. Only during Thanksgiving, Xmas party for big home gathering.

I use a mixture of Beef brisket and chunks of striploin. I didn't trim away the fat entirely. left it in there to cook.

Gina,

when I am in a hurry, I prefer to use lamb - less cooking time and always tender. The lamb here is quite good - don't have that strong taste (smell island ). Yes I love curry with gravy, then can mop up the leftover with bread for breakfast Smile .
Maybe next time, I will cook it dry - see whether it taste different (hubby prefer dry curry) :roll:

Gina,
This dish looks wonderful! The recipe you wrote supposes to be "semi spicy" (my husband and I like very hot)? And is this Indian curry?

I used lamb in curry once, couldn't take that meat taste. But mutton (from resturant) no problem though. Anyway, I will follow you using beef first and see how.

sinner, I like your dish too... thinking of soaking naan into that thick gravy... ummm... yum!

Thinking of trying out this dish since we haven't had anything spicy for a month or 2 already (me not good at cooking spicy dishes).

Gina, can i find out what type of beef you used?

Thanks

jerseymom, it is the reverse for us here. Mutton have a much stronger meat taste than lamb and have to be cooked much longer. I added extra chilli powder for ours as we like it hot too. :twisted: The gravy for this curry would go very well with naan. Smile.

yes. best eaten with nasi brayiani. In Devagi's cookbook, she had a photo of it with rice on the side.

but I was dreaming of dipping the gravy with my many Indian Naan I made the other day.

so delicious..now thinking of eating Mantou with it too. Embarassed

Giselle

see the portion I wrote " 1 red chilli(discard seeds)". Devagi's original recipe uses 10 pcs and with the seeds intact..thus will make it very spicy.

Up to you..how many pcs of red chillies you want to add.

Razz

also if you use spices quoted above, the mutton smell will not be very evident. the spices really killed the smell. coffee

I din use red chilli as I was afraid that it might be too hot. Used green big chilli instead. 1st green chilli without seed was blended with the rest. It was not spicy at all, so I added another green chilli whole in. It wasn't spicy at all. Next time I will add more or try with red chilli. But overall still yummy delicious. It taste like those chicken curry I ordered from the naan shop in Boat Quay, so next time I can do my own and save cost. Smile Btw, I added a binjal and a tomato too. JC love dipping her naan too. Smile

Hello faeriedust
Not it is not the same aniseeds may be available in Indian/Pakistani or Middleastern stores or even Italian stores.
