Beef with Fenugreek Recipe

Beef with Fenugreek Recipes

Ingredients :

4 tbsp ghee

2 tbsp mild curry paste

750g (1.5 lb) stewing beef, cubed

4 tomatoes, chopped

4 tbsp dried fenugreek leaves

1 tbsp garam masala



Curry Puree -

6 tbsp ghee

2-4 garlic cloves, finely chopped

5cm (2 inch) piece of fresh root ginger, peeled and finely chopped

1/2 onion, finely chopped

2 tsp mild curry paste

1 tsp tomato puree

1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves


To garnish -

2 tbsp chopped parsley

Method :

To make the curry puree, heat the 6 tbsp of ghee in a large frying pan or wok. Stir-fry the garlic for 1 minute. Add the ginger and stir-fry for 1 minute more. Add the onion and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes more. Stir in the 2 tsp of curry paste, tomato puree and corianders with enough water to prevent the mixture from sticking. Simmer for 5 minutes.

Heat the 4 tbsp of ghee in another large frying pan or wok and stir-fry the curry puree for 5 minutes. Stir the 2 tbsp of curry paste in well to blend and add the cubes of beef. Stir-fry for about 5 minutes more to seal the meat.

Transfer the meat and sauce to a heavy lidded casserole and bake in a preheated oven, 190C (375F), gas mark 5, for 20 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, dried fenugreek, garam masala and salt to taste, with a little water to moisten if necessary. Continue cooking for a further 25 minutes. If, at the end of the cooking time, there is an excess of oil, spoon it off before serving. Garnish with chopped parsley.

Serves 4

Cubes of beef are cooked with dried fenugreek leaves, called 'methi', to produce this moist savory curry. Fenugreek leaves are widely used, either fresh or dried, in Indian cooking.
