  • 1 oz lard
  • 1 1/4 lb shin of beef cut into 1 1/4 inch cubes
  • 1/2 pint water
  • 2 onions skinned and sliced
  • 1 garlic clove skinned and crushed
  • 1 tbsp hot curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 pint milk
  • salt


  • Melt half the lard in a heavy saucepan or flameproof casserole and fry the meat cubes quickly to seal. Stir in the water, cover and simmer very gently for about 1 1/2 hours until the beef is tender.
  • Melt the remaining lard in another pan and fry the onions for 5 minutes until golden brown. Stir in the garlic and spices and fry gently, stirring, for a further 4-5 minutes. Blend in the milk, then add to the cooked meat with salt, to taste. Simmer, uncovered, for about 10 minutes or until the juices are reduced slightly.
