    1. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook and stir onion in the hot oil until soft and beginning to brown, about 12 minutes. If browned bits of onion are stuck to the bottom of the pan, stir water into onion and stir to loosen the browned bits.
    2. Mix beef mince, garlic, ginger, chilli and fresh coriander into pan; cook and stir until mince is browned, 10 to 15 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir coriander, salt, cumin, cayenne pepper and turmeric into the mince; cook and stir until flavours blend, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and potatoes, cover and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.
    3. Mix in peas and cook until sauce has slightly thickened, 10 to 15 minutes. Sprinkle with garam masala, cover and let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

    Very nice recipe I did mine in the slow cooker. Only thing is I needed yo add a bit more garam masala and curry powder for a bit stronger taste but it's a good starting recipe. Thanks!  -  11 May 2016
