Saag Aloo Beef Kofta – a spicy creamy curry with juicy meatballs and spiced potatoes. Gentle enough for the kids to enjoy too!-Ramsha Baig
I always cook rice when I make curry. It is the default.
Even if we eat naan bread or chapatis, I go into the autopilot mode and put on a pan of boiled rice.
So it was really nice, to have a recipe in front of me to follow step by step, to get me out of that automatic driving setting. And make such a beautiful change.
We start by making saag aloo – which involves frying red onions and garlic, then adding cumin, turmeric and mustard seeds.
Then we add the potatoes and stock and allow that to cook with a lid, until the potatoes are soft.
Then we make meatballs, which is a simple mixture of ground beef, salt, pepper and chopped coriander or parsley
they are fried in a bit oil till brown, before being eliminated from the pan
We then use the same pan to cook dinner some tandoori paste, with red onion and garlic until light brown, then add coconut milk and cooked meatballs and simmer together till the sauce thickens slightly.
Spinach is added to the potatoes just earlier than serving, which wilts quickly inside the heat of the pan.
