Hi, Ray here again.
Curry time again. A few weeks ago I spotted a new bhuna curry recipe had joined the great Curry Focus curry recipes. The new recipe was for beef bhuna curry and so I chose it to be this week’s curry recipe test.
These curry recipes are becoming easier to follow so maybe I’m becoming a bit of a cook.
But that doesn’t stop me from making mistakes. I failed to notice that the first step in the methods would take an hour until it was almost too late. If I had noticed it any later the cooking would have had to be postponed and out would come the baked beans on toast (ha!).
The cooking part of the recipe was pretty easy. The only thing that surprised me was that there was a lot of liquid in the curry when the final 10 minutes of cooking started. But the high heat under the uncovered curry reduced the liquid down to almost nothing when the cooking was over – just great.
As usual, the dinner guests arrived in plenty of time for the meal and I served up the Beef Bhuna Curry on basmati rice not long after they arrived.
This is an absolutely delicious curry. The beef was tender and was well cooked and the sauce had reduced really well so it was a curry with a thick sauce. The bhuna had a great sour, tart, bite that was, if anything, a bit too tart – maybe cutting back on the lemon juice would cut down on the bite a little. The beef bhuna scored 8.5 out of 10 with a heat/spice rating of “Hot”. As a bonus, I bit into one of the cardamom pods – what a taste sensation.
This is a really great beef bhuna curry for you to try. Do not forget to cut back on the lemon juice if you don’t like your curry too sour.
