I thought this was a pretty good recipe. It tasted GREAT -- only thing is my hubby had really bad heartburn afterwards. He doesn't usually react this strongly to restaurant indian food, so this was unusual. But my son and I loved it! If I ever do it again, I may do less of the spices, as 2 tablespoons of ANY spice is a lot. This recipe uses around 5 tablespoons of spices, which is a lot for most curries that I have made. I think you could half the spice and it would be almost as good, and your husband's tummy won't go crazy!
I've eaten quite a bit of Indian food and this really didn't taste that authentic. The beef stock confused the flavours. I would use water the next time. It has a bit of Indian character because of the spices but lacks the heat which is characteristic of Indian curries. I added Chinese chilli sauce which made it hotter.
This would be fine for someone who wants a hint of Indian character but would find an authentic Indian recipe too spicy or too hot.
Delicious! Using the dried spices makes it so flavorful. I have also used small chops instead of cubed meat. I am sending it to a friend who is living on a sailboat off the coast of New Zealand. Should be easy to make in galley kitchen!
Delicious! My family of 4 loved it. Next time, I will double the recipe to have left over because it was devoured.
Im not sure about those who reviewed the recipe saying it was mild, because my mouth was on fire after eating this, and I loved every minute of it! I lightly floured and seasoned the meat before browning, like you would with beef stew. I also added potatoes and carrots. A great, unique (and spicy) alternative to your average beef stew.
This turned out quite good. I added additional cayenne and had to cook lamb for longer than an hour to get it tender, but I may have had the heat too low. I ground the cumin coriander and cardamom myself and I think that made the flavors nice and bright.
I found this to be a little on the mild side, I was hoping for more flavour from the amount of spices, the meat, however, was tender and delicious, I will make this again with some tweaking of the spices.
good easy recipe,
