Durban Curry in a Hurry

Make this traditional favourite in a fraction of the normal time, using either beef, mutton or chicken. Simply use the corresponding Garlic Man Curry Paste for the meat of your choice.

You will need:

  • 4 Tbsp cooking oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 1 kg beef cubes (or use mutton or chicken pieces)
  • 2 Tbsp Garlic Man Durban Beef Curry Paste (replace with Durban Mutton or Durban Chicken Curry Paste according to the meat you are using)
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic Man Crushed Garlic & Ginger
  • 3-5 medium potatoes, chopped into cubes

Heat oil in a saucepan. Stir fry the chopped onions, add the beef cubes and braise until sealed.

Reduce heat and add the curry paste and ginger & garlic on low heat. Add cubed potatoes.

When spices start to thicken, slowly add water until desired texture has been reached. Increase heat and bring to the boil for 20 min. Reduce heat and simmer until beef is cooked.

Serve with rice and sambals – or make your own bunny chow in a hollowed out quarter loaf of bread.

      Good day Zelda,

      I am terribly sorry to hear of your experience.

      The reason that we do not stipulate on the bottle how much of the curry paste to use is because it depends on how strong or mild one wants to make ones curry.

      If we stipulate 2 tablespoons on the bottle then we will have people saying that this either makes their curry too hot or not hot enough, so we leave it to the customer’s discretion as to the amount of paste they wish to use.

      In order to assist our customers who have not used a particular product previously we have posted recipes on our website to provide them with a guideline on how to use our various products.

      Should you have any queries please contact me.

      Kind Regards
