Beef kofta curry: The deliciously simple recipe that never disappoints

Let’s make some beef kofta curry. This deliciously simple recipe never disappoints. The koftas (meatballs) in this curry can be made from lamb or chicken meat but in our case we will use beef.

What you need:

500g minced beef

300ml plain yoghurt

1/2 bunch fresh coriander

2 tomatoes diced

1 medium onion sliced

150g tomato paste

4-5 whole green chilies

Juice of 1 lime

1 egg

1 tablespoon garlic ginger paste

1 tablespoon curry powder

1 tablespoon ground ginger

1 tablespoon black pepper

Salt to taste

2-3 tablespoons veg oil for frying

1 stick curry leaves

What to do

In a medium bowl, add the minced meat, add half of the garlic ginger paste, half of the black pepper, half of the curry powder, salt, ground ginger, 1/2 lime juice and coriander.

Mix well with your hands until combined, mould the mixture into small balls.

In a wok over medium heat add in some oil and onions, sauté until soft, add some garlic ginger paste, curry powder, black pepper, tomatoes, tomato paste and yoghurt.

Mix well and bring to a boil, add salt to taste and whole green chilies, then add the meat balls into the curry, add some lime juice and a few curry leaves and cook further until curry thickens and the meat balls are cooked.

Serve with bread or rice.
