A delicious dish originating from Durban's Indian community. Rich beef curry, made with masses of cardamom, garlic and garam masala, served in a hollowed-out loaf which soaks up the all gorgeous juices and fantastic flavours.
- Heat the oil in a large saucepan and fry all the spices for a few minutes until fragrant. Add the beef brisket and onion, then stir in the chopped tomatoes, carrot, tomato purée and vegetable stock.
- Reduce the heat, cover and simmer gently for 2 hrs, until the beef is tender. Add the potatoes for the last 30 mins of cooking time.
- Serve in the hollowed-out loaves, garnished with the coriander and red onion. Serve with lemon wedges.
