    1 hour 15 minutes

    A hit with my family and an excellent beef curry. The spice mix doesn't take that long to mix up and it really makes the dish.

    Absolutely delicious! (although must admit I added a teaspoon of crushed chilli to the spice mix)..... definitely wouldn't include the flour at the end next time though - make it a little 'claggy'  -  14 Jun 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
