2 cm Ginger crushed
½ tsp Ground cardamom
1 tsp Ground coriander
tsp Ground cumin
1 Onion

Method

1

Heat a heavy-based pan over a medium to high heat, add the oil. Add the onion, garlic and ginger and stir until the onion turns golden brown colour.

2

Add all the dry spices, stir until well-combined, add a tablespoon of water if necessary to prevent sticking to the base of the pan.

3

Add the beef to the pan. Stir until coated in spices.

4

Pour in the tomatoes, break it up gently. Bring to the boil whilst stirring.

5

Once boiled, turn the heat down to simmer. Taste and adjust the seasoning as needed.

6

Simmer for about 1-1.5 hours and stir every 15 minutes to avoid tiny amount of sauce sticking to the pan. Cook until the beef is tender.
