Beef Pasanda

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Brian Holley

A dish from pakistan. The beef is tenderised by marinating in yogurt, the yogurt is also used as a cooking sauce. This is my daughters favourite curry. Siniah, my cook, taught me to cook this and it is wonderful.

This was delicious, thanks. I used a lot less ghee. I also added ground almonds ( about 15 peeled almonds ground to a paste). I let it cook until the fat separates.
