As we usher in a new season, I’m totally embracing the warmth and sunshine that comes with it. Clearly, my focus is shifting from comforting meals to bright and vibrant dishes. Yes, it’s time to bring in the spring vibes. But, on the other hand, the cool evenings are tempting me to indulge in more cozy and comforting dinners. And at the moment, this beef coconut curry reigns supreme on my menu.
I really love the combination of coconut milk and tender beef in this dish. Honestly, I’ve been wanting to share this recipe with you for a very long time. And it’s finally created and photographed ready for you. I’ve made many beef curries before, and the Indian beef curry is one of my favorites. This beef curry flavored with coconut milk is a bit different from all the other beef recipes I have on the blog. With this coconut beef curry, I just want to help you make an easy curry with minimal ingredients. Trust me, it’s super delicious too.
How to make this easy beef coconut curry
Enter the key ingredients that make this curry so flavorsome – coconut milk and curry powder. As I mentioned, ‘minimal ingredients’ is the one thing that make this curry extra special. I’ve also added in a few dry spices like bay leaves and cinnamon stick for a special flavor touch.
Coming to the recipe, you’ll need to start with frying the dry spices, cinnamon stick and bay leaves, in a little oil. Give it a quick stir fry for a minute or so until you get a beautiful aroma. Then saute some onions until they are nicely browned. I also like to add in a sprig of curry leaf at this stage. As the curry leaves fry in the oil, they will release all their flavor and aroma. Now, add in a little ginger and garlic paste, another quintessential element of a great curry.
Once the ginger garlic paste is aromatic, fry the curry powder quickly without burning it. It adds the right amount of spices and heat to this beef coconut curry. Not too spicy, not too bland, but just the right amount to flavor the beef. Now, pour in coconut milk and a little water, season, and give it a quick stir.
The star ingredient, beef, goes into the curry next. And now to the final step of this recipe – cook beef until tender. This will take about 30-45 minutes. If you love vegetables in your beef curry, add some cubed potatoes. So good!
Serving suggestions? Garnish with plenty of coriander (cilantro) leaves and lemon wedges. Serve with cooked rice, parathas, or roti. Such a perfect way to enjoy the cool evenings!
