Padma's Braised Beef or Lamb

Submitted by: CARIOLA

Number of Servings: 4


    2 tsp canola oil
    1 tsp cumin seeds
    2 cup chopped onion\
    4 dried red chili peppers
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    2 Tbsp minced ginger
    3 bay leaves
    3 cardamon pods
    4 whole cloves
    1.5 pounds beef stew meat (or lamb)
    2-1/2 pounds plum tomatoes
    1.5 tsp garam masala


n a large pot, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add cumin seeds, and after 2 minutes sauté onions, chilies, garlic, and ginger. Stir-fry for 5 minutes. Stir in bay leaves, cardamom, and cloves.

Add meat and stir-fry for 5 more minutes, searing meat on all sides. Add tomatoes and garam masala.

When the tomatoes start to loosen from their skins (about 4 to 5 minutes), lower the heat and add enough boiling water to cover the whole mixture.

Once it comes to a gentle boil, add a pinch of salt and reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for 1˝ hours, stirring every 7 minutes or so, making sure the mixture doesn't stick to the bottom of the pot. You may add additional water, if needed.
