Ingredients :

1 cup

4 cloves

3 teaspoons

1 teaspoon

1/2 teaspoon

1/2 teaspoon

4 tablespoons

1 tablespoon

1 teaspoon

1 1/2 cups

2 tablespoons


Skirt steak



Onion, roughly chopped

Garlic, crushed

Fresh ginger, finely chopped

Method :
  • Cut the beef into 3 cm cubes.

  • Peel and cube the potatoes.

  • Trim the okra; if large, halve it lengthways, otherwise leave whole.

  • Place the onion, garlic, ginger, turmeric, paprika and chili in a food processor and process until a thick paste is formed.

  • Heat the  oils in a large heavy-based pan. Add the onion mixture and cook over a low heat for about 20 minutes, adding a little water if the mixture starts to stick or burn.

  • When the paste is cooked it should be a golden brown color with oil forming around the edges.

  • Add the beef and cook, stirring for 5 minutes, until browned.

  • Add the cumin and combine well.

  • Pour in the water or stock and simmer, covered, for about 2 hours or until the meat is tender.

  • Add the potato and okra in the last 3/4 hour of cooking; remove the lid for the final 10 minutes until the sauce reduces and thickens.

  • Season with salt to taste, sprinkle over the garlic chives, and serve with lemon wedges and rice.
