Sometimes I forget what I pin to my pinterest, after browsing the other night I found several recipes for Malaysian curries which all sounded amazing, however, my partner doesn’t like fish sauce or lime in a meal which most had so I have mashed together my version. I have to admit it is one of my tastiest curries EVER! My partner was looking for more after 1 serving…..that’s when I know I’ve made a masterpiece! lol!
400-500g Scotch Beef – cubed
1 tsp salt and pepper
2 tsp light brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp tamarind paste
40g desicated coconut, toasted in a dry pan (reserve 2 tbsp for the paste)
1 red onion chopped
1 red chilli – finely chopped
1/2 inch ginger, roughly chopped
2 cloves of garlic – chopped
2 tbsp toasted coconut (from above)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp Gram Masala
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
3 tbsp soy sauce
1 can coconut milk 400ml.
- Mix together the salt, sugar, tamarind paste in 50ml water in a bowl. Add the beef cubes with are seasoned with salt & pepper and toss to fully coat, sprinkle in 2 tbsp of toasted coconut and stir through to coat well, leave to soak for about 1/2 hour.
2. Put all the spice paste ingredients into a food processor and blend together until you get a smooth paste.
3. Heat the oil in a large pan, brown the meat, remove to a bowl.
4. Add the spice paste to the pan and the rest of the curry sauce ingredients with any remaining marinade mix from the beef and cook for a few minutes. (high heat)
5. Add the coconut milk and simmer for a couple of minutes, gently add back to the pan the beef.
6. Turn the heat to low simmer, cover and cook for about 2-3 hours until the meat falls apart.
7. Uncover, turn the heat up to high and boil for 10 minutes to reduce and thicken the sauce.
8. I served on a bed of long and wild rice and garnish with Coriander.
OH SO YUMMY!!! BEST EVER CURRY!
It also tastes amazing with a glass of Rioja wine.
