This is a lovely idea if you fancy a curry that’s a little bit different – Beef Kofta Curry. The meatballs are tender and light, and you can actually taste the individual spices one by one, so I think this is more interesting than an average curry, but I am not going to pretend that making your own curry is always easy!
This recipe for Beef Kofta Curry is a really old recipe of mine that I knew how to make, and it is really up there with my favourites – it is fun to make and you won’t have to marinade the meat for long time, although it’s always good to marinade well – this is how we get the fullest flavour and the process tenderises the meat too. I never used a marinade until I started to cook curries, and now I marinade pretty much all meat for curries, most of the BBQ recipes and I use it for many other meat dishes too.
Indian food is always quite colourful, so don’t forget the importance of the colour of the spices, and also the way they garnish the food before they serve it.
Also, have you seen how they store their spices? Have a look below, what a lovely invention – I have always had one of these spice containers, so most of my spices that I use often are handy ready for me to use, and the rest of the spices I put into empty jars. The secret to keeping spices lasting longer with the best flavour is to keep them air-tight and away from the light.
So let’s cook this beautiful Beef Kofta Curry:
