Dylan's friend kindly gave me his Mum's family recipe. As always I had a little play and came up with this and we all really enjoyed it. I served it with rotis but substituted the oil for the same amount of melted clarified butter.
500g minced beef (you can use lamb)
1 diced white onion
4 cloves garlic
1 inch of ginger grated
Pinch of chilli flakes (depending on how hot you like it, I used a large pinch)
100ml Tomato and basil sauce
2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp chilli powder
large pinch of salt
Handful of frozen peas
100ml Coconut cream
Fresh coriander chopped (optional)
Soften the onion in a large frying pan with the oil, add the garlic, grated ginger and spices, cook out for 2 minutes.
Add the mince to the pan, fry until browned, add the tomato and basil sauce and a glass of water, simmer for 20 minutes, stir in the coconut cream and add the peas, cook for another 5-10 minutes. Sprinkle with the chopped coriander to serve.
