Madras Curry

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Brian Holley

A recipe from the south of India. The further south you go the stronger the curries, this is a great dish, and can be made using beef or lamb. The pomegranate rice is colourful and add a bit of sweetness to the dish.

My husband is from Scotland, and he got me hooked on Indian food! Unfortunately we live in a small town in New Mexico and cant get it here. I have been making this Madras, and it is our absolute favorite meal! We have it for Christmas and Easter and any other special occasion we can think of! Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe.
