Calcutta Beef Curry Recipes

Ingredients :

1 liter (1.75 pints) milk

1-1.25 kg (2-2.5 lb) braising steak, trimmed and cut into 4 cm (1.75 inch) cubes

50g (2 oz) ghee

2 large onions, thinly sliced

5 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

7.5cm (3 inch) piece of fresh root ginger, peeled and thinly sliced

2 tsp garam masala


Spice mixture -

1 tsp salt

1 tbsp chili powder

2 tsp ground coriander

1 tsp pepper

1.5 tsp turmeric

1 tsp ground cumin

Method :

Put the spice mixture ingredients into a large bowl. Mix in a little of the milk to make a paste, then gradually stir in the remaining milk. Add the cubes of beef and stir well until the beef is evenly coated.

Melt the ghee in a heavy-based frying pan or wok, add the onions, garlic and ginger and fry gently for 4-5 minutes, until soft.

Remove the beef from the milk and spice mixture with a slotted spoon, add to the pan and stir-fry over a moderate heat until browned on all sides.

Increase the heat, add the milk and spice mixture and bring to the boil. Cover the pan, lower the heat and cook gently for 90-120 minutes, or until the beef is tender and the sauce reduced.

Just before serving, sprinkle in the garam masala. Increase the heat and boil off any excess liquid to leave a thick sauce. Transfer the curry to a warmed serving dish and serve immediately.

Serves 4-6
