green chile peppers, finely sliced
whole cardamom seeds
1 1/2 (2 inch)
boneless beef chuck, cut into 1-1/2-inch pieces
I really enjoyed this recipe...I didn't have green chilies so I used some jalapenos...didn't have cardamom pods but I used a good size pinch of cardamom powder. Cut back on the cayenne peper (was scared it would be to hot) it was a mild medium heat. Perfect for me...Super yummy..my family loved it! Will make again for sure! :)
This curry did not work for my family, did not like the overall taste at all, all I could taste was Turmeric. I really think this needs to be reduced by at least 1/2 to allow the other flavors to come through. Glad I tried this recipe, but I will not be making again.
This is a very good dish. I didn't alter it that much and it is definitely a keeper. I like lots of flavor, so I tend to interpret teaspoons as largely heaping teaspoons for spices. I used a little over a pound of beef, heaping teaspoons of cumin, corriander, and turmeric, as well as minced fresh garlic (no powder required)I used the cardamom and cloves as listed, about 1 tbsp of minced ginger, and a 2 inch piece of cinnamon. I used two extra large jalapenos, which were plenty. Cayenne/red chili powder is only needed to taste depending on how spicy the peppers are and how much you can handle. Beef dishes tend to need to be cooked for 3-4 hours to be cooked properly until tender. Potatoes can also be added to this dish towards the end of cooking. I served with basmati rice and homemade naan.
I really lovd this, although the meat wasn't as tender as I would have liked. Next time I'll simmer at least 2 hours. I halfed the cayenne and it was still pretty spicy for us and we like heat! I added an extra cup of water and about two cups of cubed potatoes the last 30 minutes. :) Thanks!
This was terrific. I used about half a jalapeño instead of the Thai chiles; the dish has a really nice mix of warm heat from the cayenne, and a more biting heat from the fresh chile. I omitted the garlic powder and added a few good healthy pinches of salt at the end of the cooking time. Oh, and I only used two tablespoons of oil to caramelize the onions—I used half mustard oil and half canola. We had this with basmati rice and garnished it with chopped cilantro. Next time, I'd also serve it with some sort of cooling raita.
Great recipe. Very authentic. The only thing I added was some salt.
I used 2 Serrano chilies instead of the others and I omitted the cayenne. It was spicy enough that way. I used about 1/2 c. more water as I made it in a Dutch oven and the first cup of water evaporated quickly.
Excellent! I threw the meat, potatos and some winter squash in the crock pot with onion and 3 cloves of garlic, added about 1/2 c of water, as well as cloves, cardamom and cinnimon sticks. About 2 hours before serving, I grated 5 more cloves of garlic heated it in the oil with the other spices, which was increased to 1/2 Tbs each. Added salt to taste. Served with Roti Bread and it was wonderful!! Thank you!
