Directions: How to Cook Meat Madras
Heat 3 tbsp oil from the specified amount over medium heat and fry the onions , coarsely chopped ginger, garlic and red chillies until the onions begin to brown slightly (8-9 minutes), stirring frequently. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Add the cumin, coriander, chilli powder and turmeric, adjust heat to low and cook for 4-5 mins, stirring frequently. Add the meat and adjust heat to medium high. Stir and fry until meat changes colour (5-6 mins).
Add water, bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, place the fried onions etc in an electric blender or food processor and add the remaining tomatoes. Blend until smooth and add this to the meat - bring to the boil, add salt and mix well. Cover the pan and simmer for a further 35-40 minutes, or until the meat is tender.
Stir in the garam masala and coriander leaves and remove from heat. Serve with plain boiled rice or any Indian bread. Suitable for home freezing.
