Easy beef curry

Curries are really easy to make providing you have all of the spices. You will notice there is no chili in the recipe, this is spicy not hot so if you like it hot, add additional chili. Its a simple any day curry that is great for kids. I am a big believer in getting kids to try everything before they say they don’t like it so give this easy curry recipe a try and see how your kids like it.

What you need

750g beef goulash(most supermarkets have it cubed already)
2 onions finely chopped
3 cloves garlic crushed
1 teaspoon ginger, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon masala powder
375 ml beef stock
salt and black pepper
2 potatoes quartered

The process

In a large pot with a little oil on a high heat, brown the beef and remove from the pot.

Add the onions, garlic and ginger and cook for 2-3 minutes stirring constantly, add the spices and stir for another 2 minutes, you want to cook the spices so that they release their flavours.

Now add the stock, bring to the boil, add the meat, reduce the heat to medium, cover and simmer for 1 hour.

Remove the lid, add the potatoes and simmer for about another 20-30 minutes or until the potatoes are done. Thats it, you have a fantastic easy curry.

Tip: to stop peeled potatoes from discoloring, submerge in water immediately after peeling.
