Beef, potato & eggplant curry


  • Put the coconut cream and curry paste in a heavy-bottomed pot. Mix well and simmer to reduce by one-third, whisking. Remove from heat.
  • In another pot, just seal the beef on all sides in a layer of hot oil. Remove.
  • Then add a little fresh oil to the pot, if needed, and gently sauté the onion, garlic and ginger until tender, regularly stirring and scraping the bottom as you do so.
  • Add the potatoes, zucchini, eggplant and mushrooms with a little more oil. Stir until the vegies are well coated with oil.
  • Then add 2 cups stock, the tomatoes, sugar, soy, lemon juice and peanut butter with the coconut mixture. Mix well and bring to the boil.
  • Turn the heat right down, return the beef and gently simmer for about 45 mins until the meat is tender, adding more stock as needed. Taste for seasoning.
  • Mix in the coriander and serve on a generous amount of steamed rice with a dollop of yoghurt on top.
