This curry is made with good old fashioned curry powder. It is Keens all the way in our house. Anything that orange has to be good.
- 1 teaspoon-1 tablespoon of Keens curry powder, depending on taste and the need to feed small children
- 700g of cubed steak (stewing steak is fine)
- 1 onion
- 1 apple, peeled and chopped into roughly 1.5cm cubes
- 1 tin of tomatoes
- 1 bay leaf, 1 cinnamon stick and a cardamon pod (optional but it makes it look a bit more impressive)
- salt and pepper
First of all chop the onion up roughly. Fry the onion in a little bit of oil and add the desired amount of curry powder. Once the onions are brown and the curry powder fragrant (using the word "fragrant" makes it sound like I know what I am talking about, doesn't it?) add the meat and brown the outside. Add the apple and stir that around a bit too. Once the meat is brown, tip in the tinned tomatoes and add a little water if needed. Then if you want to you can add the bay leaf and stuff. I also add a little salt and pepper. It will look like this.
Bring the curry to the boil and then pop the lid on, turn the heat right down and let the curry simmer slowly for an hour. That's it. I serve this curry with brown rice, some mango chutney and slivered almonds.
The end result looks like this (yours could well look better...)

Anyway - I am going to stop blogging now. The builder is still jackhammering bits of the bathroom floor and I think the time has come to depart the house.
