• 1 kg of steak mince
• 3 onions, peeled and finely chopped
• 3 cardamom pods...
• 4 cinnamon sticks
• 3 tbsp fresh garlic & ginger finely grated
• 1 tsp turmeric

• 3 tbsp roasted masala or leaf masala
° 1 tablespoon of Breyani masala
• Salt to taste
• 6 potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
• 1 cup peas
• 3 tbsp fresh coriander roughly chopped
• 3 tbsp oil

Heat your oil in a large pot on medium to high heat. Add the onions, cardamom pods, cinnamon sticks and fry until golden. Add the minced meat and garlic & ginger and braise for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Next, add a cup of warm water to the minced meat and cook on medium heat for about 30 minutes. Add the spices and salt then cook and stir for 10 minutes, adding a little water at a time to prevent the spices from burning. Add the potatoes with 2 cups of warm water and cook until almost tender, add the peas and simmer for 8-10 minutes. Sprinkle over the fresh coriander. Serve with basmati rice or roti. So delicious.
