A pretty simple way to satisfy your hunger for Indian food. Add spice as needed.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs beef sirloin tip, cut into chunks
- 1 yellow onion, finely chopped
- 1 (14 ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained
- 1⁄2 cup plain nonfat yogurt
- 1 tablespoon ground coriander
- 1 tablespoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon cayenne
- 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
- 2 teaspoons garam masala
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tablespoons ginger, peeled and grated
- 3 tablespoons ghee
- In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 2 T of ghee. Add the garlic, ginger, turmeric, cayenne, coriander and cumin and cook for about 1 minute.
- Increase the heat to medium high and add the beef. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
- Reduce heat to medium and add the onion, continuing to cook and stirring frequently until the onions have softened, about 5 minutes.
- Add the tomatoes and yogurt, stir well and bring mixture to slow boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer about 35-40 minutes, or until beef is very tender.
- In a small separate pan, melt remaining ghee and combine with garam masala. Stir well. Pour over the beef mixture and stir to combine. Serve hot with basmati rice or naan.
Great recipe! I made this exactly as written except that I cut the cayenne pepper in half. Still spicy enough for my boys. This was a quick and easy dinner. Thanks for sharing.
DELICIOUS!! This was really excellent and I will definitely make it again. The only thing I did differently from the recipe was, on a whim, I threw in the remainder of a package of ground almonds (couple of tablespoons) that I found in my cupboard. This thickened the sauce a little and enhanced the "Indian-ness" of the overall dish.
A bit spicy but very flavorful. I used chicken instead of beef. I also used Rajah garam masala and instead of ghee ( I should of bought it) I used unsalted butter in a fix. Overall a great dish with either rice or naan
