  • 1.5kg of meat
  • 1 Onion
  • 3 Tomatoes, Grated
  • 4 Green Chillies
  • 1 Tablespoon Ginger and garlic, Ground
  • 1 Sprig of Curry leaf
  • 2 and half Tablespoon of Kashmiri Chillie Powder mix

  2. Mix and add Meat and Salt to taste – mix well
  3. Lower the Heat and allow to cook for about 25 to 35 minutes, depending on the type of meat (I use C grade) whilst stirring occasionally.
  4. Add Potatoes, put a little egg yellow food coloring to the potatoes, it looks lovely in the Curry.
  5. Reduce the heat to low, if you using a normal pot add a little water, I use the AMC so I don’t use any water in my Curries.
  6. When the potatoes are soft Garnish with Dhaniya / Dhania / Corriander or fresh curry leaves

Enjoy. PS.. The lower the heat the more gravy accumulates
