Preparation:45min › Cook:45min › Ready in:1hour30min
- To make the curry roux, Put 1 tablespoon of butter in a small frypan. Add the onion slices and saute them on a low heat setting until they're slightly browned. Add the garlic and ginger and continue to saute.
- Heat the other tablespoon of butter in a pot and add flour. Mix over a low heat.
- Add the curry powder next to the pot with the onions and butter, then little amounts of the stock bit by bit. Stir.
- Add the butter-onion mix into the pot. Simmer for a bit THEN add the garam masala.
- To make the curry; depending on how you like your meat you may tenderise it. After that is done, heat your frypan with vegetable oil as well.
- Add the meat and vegetables. Season with S&P if you wish. Cook the ingredients till the meat isn't pink anymore and if the onion is slightly translucent.
- Transfer this mix to a pot, adding the water. Boil for a few minutes then lower it to low-medium heat. Simmer until the meat is tender or to your satisfaction.
- Add the curry roux afterwards. If you're using pre-packaged, break the pieces in and stir it in well until the mixture gets thick and curry-like. With the homemade mixture, stir it in the pot and let it mix with the water. It will thicken.
- Serve with noodles or rice!
