This is SUCH a simple, and healthy option to the typical curry. It's so so delicious and surprisingly easy. It's one of my new favourites when getting that craving for delicious Indian foods! 

Serves 6
1kg beef brisket, sliced into small cubes
400g can chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp. olive oil 
2 medium brown onions, diced
4 garlic cloves, crushed
3/4 cup plain greek yoghurt
1/2 tsp. chilli flakes
1 tbsp. ground coriander 
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground cardamon
1 tsp salt 
1 tsp pepper 
6 whole cloves (this is a spice, not garlic!) 
1 tsp. ground turmeric 
1 tsp. garam masala 
1 tbsp. grated ginger
1 tbsp. fresh coriander leaves 


  1. Trim beef of any large fatty pieces and cut into bite sized pieces
  2. Add olive oil into a large pan and heat over medium heat. 
  3. Add onion, garlic and ginger into the pan and cook for 5 minutes or until onions become soft. 
  4. Add 1/2 cup of yoghurt, chilli, ground coriander, cumin, cardamon, whole cloves, turmeric and garam masala and cook for 2 minutes. 
  5. Add beef and brown lightly. 
  6. Transfer this mixture to a slow cooker. 
  7. Add tomato and the remaining 1/4 cup of yoghurt and turn on to high for 4 hours, or low for 8 hours. 
  8. Serve with rice and fresh coriander 


  • I made this curry last week and it was amazing. I make quite a few Curries however this is by far the easiest! Only change I made was chucking half a red cap in because it was starting to look sad in the crisper. Will definitely make again, also freezes really well.

  • Hi. Can this recipe be adjusted to use a pressure cooker instead of a slow cooker?

  • This curry was so delicious! Super easy to make as well. My house smelt so amazing when I came home from work! I added mushrooms to mine.

  • Hey this recipe looks really good but is it possible not to put it in a slow cooker. Can i continue cooking it on the stove? And if yes how long would it take?
