Preparation :

Let's use our good old  BMMS method for the curry. So follow in below order step by step

Step 1: The Base (5 mins)

  1. Take a curved or flat bottomed pot and bring it to a medium flame and add 50 ml oil of your choice.
  2. Add chopped onion and sauté till it turns   gold brown
  3. Add the crushed/grated ginger and garlic and sauté for a 30-60 sec till sense the raw smell go away
  4. Add all the tomatoes/puree give it a bit of stir for a minute

Step 2: The Masala (5 mins)

  1. Add 1 1/2  tbsp of 'The One Curry' masala
  2. Add 1/2  tbsp salt .Give it a good mix
  3. Add a little bit of water to avoid burning
  4. Keep sautéing till the entire mixture turns nice and soft for about 2-3 mins
  5. Tomato Test: You should now see the tomatoes completely turned soft and mushy

Step 3: The Main (5 mins)

  1. Add all the beef meat and give it all an awesome mix so the meat gets coated well. 
  2. Add 1 1/2 cup of water
  3. Salt and heat Test: Do a final salt and heat test and add salt or black pepper(about 1 tsp if you like some heat) as per your liking.
  4. Add the mint leaves and give it above mix
  5. Bring the flame to high and let it come to a nice boil.
  6. If you have lemon just give the mixture one tiny squeeze if not that's ok too.

Step 4: The Simmering (25 mins)

  1. As soon as you see entire gravy boiling close the pot with the lid and reduce the flame to simmer(between medium and sim) for at least 45 mins. Give it a couple of stirs in between to make sure the bottom doesn't burn and put the lid back on.
  2. Bring to a high flame and boil it for 5-7 more mins till the water reduces to 60% of its initial level and the gravy gets a bit thick.
  3. Add a spoon of butter (optional)
  4. Add chopped Cilantro and let it boil for 1 minute
  5. Traditionally the curry is served here. But you can proceed below if you like it a bit creamy. Both are delicious in its own way.
  6. Add 50 ml of coconut cream coconut cream and let it boil for another 2-3 mins.
  7. Finish it off with some Chopped Cilantro.

Enjoy with Rice or Naan bread!
