Ingredients
 

  • 2 Bay leaves
  • 750 g Braised beef brisket
  • 1 tsp Chilli powder (mild)
  • 4 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
  • 8 cloves Garlic
  • 2 cm Ginger crushed
  • 1/2 tsp Ground cardamom
  • 1 tsp Ground coriander
  • 1/3 tsp Ground cumin
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 400 g Tomato
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric

Instructions
 

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Add the beef to the pan. Stir until coated in spices.
  • Pour in the tomatoes, break it up gently. Bring to the boil whilst stirring.
  • Once boiled, turn the heat down to simmer. Taste and adjust the seasoning as needed.
  • 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.
  • Garnish with coriander.
