Hi, Ray here again.
Time to try another of the great range of curry recipes on the Curry Focus website. My local supermarket was advertising a special on beef so I chose the Beef and Potato curry to take advantage of the special. The way I figure it, the more I save on ingredients, the more I can spend on a beer to have with the curry.
This is another really easy curry to make and all you have to remember is that you have to simmer the curry for about 2.5 hours – so if you’re planning on dining at 7pm then you have to start making the curry around 4pm.
I cut up the beef and mixed it up with the salt and turmeric.
Then I prepared the onions, garlic and ginger and was ready to start the cooking.
I stir-fried the onion, garlic and ginger for about 10 minutes. Then I added the beef and spices and stir-fried for another 5 minutes.
Then in went the water. I brought the curry to a simmer, covered and left it for 2 hours, returning to stir the curry every 10 – 15 minutes.
I quickly peeled and cubed the potatoes when the 2 hours were nearly finished and then added the potato cubes to the curry, stirring well and covering the frying pan again.
I started up some rice after 5 minutes and everything was ready just 20 minutes after the potato was added.
The Beef and Potato curry was served up to the assembled diner (just 2 of us for dinner tonight) and we tasted the results of my cooking.
It was a good curry. Not a great curry but a good one. It had a mild to medium spicy taste. The beef was lovely and tender. There wasn’t much colour on the plate so I maybe should have garnished the curry with some fresh coriander. The curry received a good rating of 7 out of 10.
Of course, there was far too much curry for the two of us. We had the same curry the next night and it tasted a little spicier than the previous night (funny how curries do that). And we still hadn’t finished the curry so put the remainder into a container and popped it into the freezer for another day.
I definitely recommend this curry if you want to try a curry that is not too spicy.
