Prep:15min › Cook:20min › Ready in:35min
- Heat oil in a large deep frying pan over medium high heat. Add onion, and sauté until light golden, then throw in the garlic, and cook for 1 minute. Put in 1/3 of the water and tomato, then season with salt, chilli powder, cumin and turmeric. Simmer for 1 minute.
- Add beef and cook for at least 10 minutes, adding another 1/3 of the water when it gets dry. When the beef mixture is dry, pour in the black-eyed beans. Cook for 3 minutes. Stir in the remaining water, and reduce the heat to low. Cover and simmer until all of the water has cooked down, and you can see the oil.
- Remove from the heat and mix in the garam masala. Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle the lemon juice, coriander and green chillies over the top.
This is FANTASTIC. I serve with cucumber raita and chapatis. I doubled the spices and it is just right, very flavourful and aromatic but not very spicy - just right. You must try this dish, it's really fab! - 03 Nov 2009
