  • 1 onion (large, peeled and finely chopped)
  • 4 cloves garlic (crushed)
  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons yellow mustard seeds
  • 1 tablespoon Garam Masala
  • 1 tablespoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 8 fresh curry leaves
  • 2 1/4 pounds chuck steak (trimmed, diced)
  • 2 cups beef stock

Directions

  1. Heat the ghee or oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Sauté the onion and garlic for 4-5 mins, until the onion is soft. Add the ground spices and curry leaves and cook, stirring, for 1 min. Brown the meat in the pan, in 3 batches, for 4-5 mins each, stirring to coat in the spices. Return all the meat to the pan, add the stock and cinnamon sticks, then bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, covered, for 1 hour 15 mins. Remove the lid and cook for 10 more mins, until the meat is tender. Add the squash and the eggplant and cook, covered, for 10-15 mins, until the vegetables are just tender. Stir in the half and half, then sprinkle with the cilantro. Serve with steamed rice and yogurt.
