How to Make Spicy Beef and Potato Curry (Gosht Aur Aloo)

  • Dice the beef and potatoes into large chunks (about 1x1inch).
  • Make a paste of ginger.
  • Finely slice onions (red onions have a sharper taste)
  • Slit the green chillies lengthwise, do not de-seed.
  • Cut the garlic cloves lengthwise.
  • In a non-stick pan, heat 2 tbsp of oil. Add cardamom, cloves, cinnamon, star-anise and bay Leaves. Sauté for about 5 seconds
  • Add onions and sauté till golden brown.
  • Now add the green chillies, ginger paste, garlic and sauté for about 2 mins.
  • Add turmeric-chilli-cumin powders and sauté for about 2-3 mins till the raw taste leaves.
  • Add the above mixture to the pressure cooker with the beef and salt to taste in it. Cover and cook till 1 whistle on high flame, reduce flame and cook for another 3 whistles (about 30 mins).
  • If you do not use pressure cooker; you still can cook it covered on a normal heavy bottomed pan, it would take around 15 mins to bring to boil then on medium flame around 60 mins.
  • While the Beef is getting cooked, in a non-stick pan heat the remaining oil and add the diced potatoes and sauté on medium flame till golden brown and ¾ cooked.
  • After the 4 whistles are done, switch off flame and allow it to cool down.
