Hi, Ray here again.
The weekend is here again and time for another yummy curry.
This time, instead of me choosing a curry from the list of great Curry Focus recipes, the choice was somewhat forced upon me because I found some beef in the freezer that needed to be used pretty soon. I quickly reviewed the beef curry recipes and found one for Beef Madras Curry.
And I didn’t need to buy any of the ingredients for the curry – everything was already in the house. I’ve gathered quite a selection of spices and ingredients over the last couple of years.
The recipe is pretty straightforward and hardly any preparation is needed.
And the beef was very lean with hardly any bits of fat that needed to be sliced off.
I followed the easy instructions and timed the cooking pretty well with the curry being ready about 10 minutes later than planned. This weekend the dinner guests left their arrival fashionably late and knocked on the door just as the rice was ready in the microwave (they had phoned earlier and given an arrival time).
I served up the Beef Madras Curry on a bed of basmati rice (sounds pretty professional with a description like that).
And the curry was superb. The words “lovely”, “tasty” and “great” were bandied around by the happy eaters. The beef was tender and well cooked and the great sauce was dry, just like you get in a curry house. The curry was very popular and was wolfed down, along with a side dish of mango chutney that went well with the curry.
One of the diners reckoned that the curry was the best that I’d made and gave it a stunning 10 out of 10 for taste. Overall, the Beef Madras curry received a taste rating of 9 out of 10 with a heat rating of medium.
If you like a Madras curry then you really must try this recipe. I’m glad that I found the beef at the bottom of the freezer and made this great curry. This is definitely a curry to add to the growing list of curries to make again.
