Winter has set in, or I’m just really feeling the cold this year. It’s officially casserole season in our house and curries are always a favourite. This Beef Curry takes only 30 minutes to cook, full of flavour and deliciously tender vegetables.
I’ve made this curry several times, in the recipe I list to use Korma curry paste, however, you can use whichever curry paste tickles your fancy or suits your taste buds. I recently used yellow curry paste as the supermarket didn’t have korma available, it was just as good, perhaps better?
Hubby and the kids came home as I was cooking this curry and they said they could smell it from the letter box, and smelt even better when they got inside.
