For my people will live as long as trees...For they are people blessed by the Lord,and their children too, will be blessed. I will answer them before they even call to me. While they are still talking about their needs,I will go ahead and answer their prayers! Isaiah 65:22-24

Kerala minced beef & potato curry

Kerala minced beef & potato curry
This is another recipe that i had tried out today from Lathika George's cookbook. The Poor eater liked it a lot :) It tasted great with rotis & was a little bit different in taste, when compared to my usual minced meat recipe. I think i will repeat this recipe, when Baby 'N' comes visiting, not that baby 'N' is going to eat it, but i think my thambua & sil will like this recipe!;) This recipe has been bookmarked, since the Poor eater liked it a lot:) I had scaled down the recipe to just 200 gms of minced meat & had also reduced the spices & herbs accordingly. But i added the juice of a whole lemon since i knew that the Poor eater would love the lemony taste . A welcome change from my usual minced meat curry:)


Minced beef - 1/2 kg, large onions - 1, chopped, tomato - 2, chopped, ginger - 1 tsp, minced, garlic - 8 cloves - , sliced, coriander pwd - 3 tbsps, chilli pwd - 2 tsps, turmeric pwd - 1 tsp, pepper pwd - 1/2 tsp, cinnamon pwd - 1/2 tsp, clove pwd - 1/2 tsp, cardamom pwd - 1/2 tsp, water - 4 cups, salt - 1 tbsp, lime juice - 1 tsp, finely chopped coriander leaves - 1 tbsp, potatoes ( large) - cut into 1/2 inch cubes, oil - 1/2 cup.


Heat the oil in a pan & add the potatoes & fry till they are golden brown, drain & reserve. In the same oil, add the onions, ginger & garlic & sauté for about 2 mins or until the onions are translucent. Then add the tomatoes & sauté for another 2 mins. Now add the coriander pwd, chilli pwd, turmeric pwd, pepper pwd, cinnamon pwd, clove pwd & cardamom pwd & stir fry over medium heat until the oil leaves the sides of the pan. Add the minced meat, salt & stir fry for a minute until the meat & the masala paste are well combined. Now pour in the water & cover & cook for 10 mins. Then add the fried potatoes & continue cooking until the meat mixture is almost dry. When done , remove from heat & drizzle the lime juce over it & garnish with chopped coriander leaves & serve hot with rice or bread.
