Savor a guilt-free "fakeaway" evening with this flavorful Beef and Potato Curry recipe that won't add to your daily intake count. Plus, you can still relish a couple of crispy poppadums without any concern about exceeding your limit.
Gotta love a good ole simple curry and this one doesn't disappoint in flavour.
I love curries of any kind and eat one at least once a week, each time vary them up by using different meats, adding different vegetables and using a different blend of spices.
I had taken some beef out of the freezer to defrost, not entirely sure what I was going to make with it, and well curry just seemed like a perfect choice.
The amount of beef wasn't really enough for the whole family, so I added in a few baby yellow potatoes, to bulk it out and oh my what a delicious combination, the potatoes really absorb all that flavour and are a perfect addition when you don't have enough meat to serve the whole family.
My very close friend who's family are North Indian, tells me that adding potatoes to a curry is a very British thing to do and not something that Indian's really do. Although she often adds some potatoes to her curries and really enjoys them too.
You could actually make a really good vegetarian curry with just potatoes and other vegetables, cauliflower would be amazing!!
The spinach was a last minute addition, as I had some that needed using up, and it's a perfect way to add some speed to a dish like this Beef and Potato Curry.
Love a little mint yoghurt for adding to the top? just mix a bit of fresh mint into some plain fat-free yoghurt, with a little lemon juice and, sukrin: 1 (or other sweeteners of choice) to sweeten and then a pinch of salt. So easy to make and yummy for dollop on the top of your curry.
What about poppadums? These Patak's Poppadums are ones you can add to the microwave. I just spray with a little spray oil, place on a bit of kitchen paper and cook in the microwave as directed. The packaging tells you to brush with oil, but spray oil works perfectly. They are a great addition to any curry.
