    *rummages in drawer*

    Got tumeric and powdered ginger., and chilli powder.

    Who buys this stuff? I do the shopping round these parts and it’s not me!

    SO how much of each? half a teaspoon each in some hot oil then in goes the beef and then onions?

    Yep can use half a teaspoon, curries are more a blend of flavours though so I always just put in “an amount” and then adjust through cooking if more or less flavour is needed. Cumin is your friend. I would gently fry all your ingredients ina bit of oil and then put in the spices, cook for a minute or 2, then put in the chopped tomatoes and wait for the flavours to come together.

    got it. I shall have a go.

    Have a look for cardomom pods too. Crack open 4 or 5 and drop them in the spice mix.

    Also remember some salt and pepper. Keep tasting and adjust the spice balance if needed. chuck a couple of bay leaves in too if you have them.

    would you believe it, there are cardamom pods in there too. I have never noticed them before.

    I need to have a word with the wife later. See what else she’s been buying…

    Fresh ginger, garlic, chilli and onion in a food proceesor, blitz it up to a paste, fry it off, add cumin, ground coriander, some garram masala and maybe some fenugreek seeds, cook for a bit longer, add beef, and some beef stock, reduce to the desired consitancy, add chick peas, spinach or whatever veg you like cook that through and serve it up.

    Essentially it’s a lambs saag recipe, but would go well with beef.

    If the spices have been hanging around for a while, prepare to be a bit disappointed*, or use shedloads of them. 🙂 And just whack in more garlic than you think. Finally, there are never too many onions in a curry.

    *Having experienced a flavourless dish when going according to a recipe and using a teaspoon of this, teaspoon of that, etc.

    To add body & colour, to the above I would add tomato puree, Dark soy (which also gives a bit of saltiness) & a dash of wine vinegar. I basically use a bit of everything in the store cupboard! I generally whack it in the oven after the initial cooking to let the flavours combine nicely.

    You guys are good at this. I dont have much experience of cooking “Indian” curries. I have some left over brisket which I have chunked up and looks good for a curry. The spices drawer has a fairly wide range of curry ingredients like garam masala, corianders, fenugreek, cumin and paprikas. Also got onions, some root veg, tinned toms, chick peas etc in the cupboards.

    Anyone got a recipe then?

    Don’t forget a little honey or sugar to give a little sweetness. Actually a teaspoon of red currant jelly or marmalade works too.

    +1 for leaving it a day, just done the mince for tomorrow’s lasagne, & left over lasagne sarnies are lush

    For sweetness ketchup works for convience or I use reduced coke mix I boil ham in (frozen in small tubs in the freezer), from nigella ham coke recipe.

    I expect mines will end up more like chilli beef.

    Tucking into the left over carrot butternut squash and corriander soup just now after a lovely ride home through autumn.
