  • Stir in the garlic, ginger and chillis. Cook for one minute. Add the beef and cook for two minutes. Add the spices, rock salt and curry leaves. Stir well, coating the meat in the spices. Add the tomatoes, and water and simmer for 1 hour. Add more water if necessary. Cook for 1 hour on a medium heat, until the meat is tender.

  • Meanwhile place the rice in a large saucepan of cold salted water and bring to the boil (or follow the Cauli Rice recipe if using). Simmer the rice gently until cooked and drain well. Serve the curry on a bed of rice and garnish with coriander.
