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

    2. Make a paste of ginger.
    3. Finely slice onions (red onions have a sharper taste)
    4. Slit the green chillies lengthwise, do not de-seed.
    5. Cut the garlic cloves lengthwise.
    6. In a non-stick pan, heat 2 tbsp of oil. Add cardamom, cloves, cinnamon, star-anise and bay Leaves. Sauté for about 5 seconds
    7. Add onions and sauté till golden brown.
    8. Now add the green chillies, ginger paste, garlic and sauté for about 2 mins.
    9. Add turmeric-chilli-cumin powders and sauté for about 2-3 mins till the raw taste leaves.
    10. 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).
    11. 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.
    12. 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.
    13. After the 4 whistles are done, switch off flame and allow it to cool down.
    14. Add the potatoes to the beef, boil for another 5 mins till the potatoes are tender and cooked.
    15. Serve hot with naan or rice.
