    This is not my own recipe, but I found it today on the web, and it is super yum (also super hot)....


    2 lbs Ground Beef

    2 Tbsp Ginger Paste

    2 Tbsp Garlic Paste

    Salt, to taste

    1 Lemon

    2 Tbsp Yogurt

    2 Tbsp Ground Red Pepper

    1 Tbsp Chili Powder

    2 Green Chilis

    1 Bunch Cilantro

    Oil or Ghee for frying (I used Coconut Oil)


    Heat the oil in a pan (high heat). Add Ginger and Garlic Paste, keep stirring so it browns a little but does not burn. Add Beef and fry until browned. Add spices and salt, keep frying until most of the moisture evaporates, then add yogurt. Stir again until most liquid is gone, then squeeze juice of the lemon over the meat. Add chilis and cilantro; simmer about 35 minutes.


    Excellent with Cauliflower rice; if you eat dairy a little yogurt on the side is awesome!

    Perfect - on my walk yesterday, a guy gave me a handful of little hot peppers out of his garden, and this sounds like an excellent use for them!

    Make sure to ware gloves when cleaning your chili peppers I made a mistake of "sucking it up" during this weekend when I was making tons of fresh salsa for a family cookout. I had to walk with ice cubes in my hands the rest of the day. That stuff BURNS!

    Thanks, CC for that important note.


    The hot oil is really hard to remove from your skin, and it has a tendency to come off onto other sensitive areas when you least expect it. Ask me how I know this ;-)


    Gloves are a great idea; I have also used leftover plastic produce bags to cover my hands for the chopping part. But gloves are best.

    CaveCat,

    Enjoy!!!


    It's a dry curry, but if you like it "wet", you can add coconut milk or a little more yogurt after it simmers.


    My Boy put a poached egg on top of his, which was also super yummy :-D

    This is getting made in my house this weekend. Sounds good. I'll have to skip the cilantro though.

    Althaur,


    Maybe you could ask permission to add Cilantro to YOUR half? Hope you two like it....

    I won't risk it. Although I do keep a container of fresh salsa tucked into the back of the refrigerator. She uses a long handled spoon to push it aside. LOL
