Recipe: Durban Curry
Updated: Sep 10
Thank you to Mo Dent @cookingmojo for this incredible recipe that works wonderfully both in a potjie (dutch oven) and a normal oven. Cooking Mojo bought their poijie at our weekly Farm Gate Market and the UK lamb from our online butchers.
1 star anise
1 cinnamon stick
3 whole cardamom pods
1⁄2 teaspoon fennel seeds
1⁄2 teaspoon cumin seeds
2 table spoons of vegetable oil
1 onion, diced
3 tablespoons garam masala
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons turmeric
1kg diced Rother Valley Farm British beef or lamb
2 tomatoes, medium, chopped
6 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 teaspoons ground ginger
6 curry leaves
2 potatoes, large, peeled, diced
Fry all the ingredients listed under "Whole spices" until the onion is glassy.
Add the "Fine spices". Stir and fry for a good 15mins
Add the tomatoes, and stir.
Add the meat, ginger, garlic and curry leaves.
Simmer for half an hour or more, until the meat is almost tender, then add a little water and the potato cubes.
Simmer until meat is tender
Add salt to taste and enjoy!
We hope you feel inspired to try this at home. Potjies are now for sale at our Farm Gate Market and fresh meat from the UK can be delivered straight to your door via our online butchers or at the weekly Market!
