This is my all time favourite curry to make; it's pungent flavour wins me over every time. You can use beef if you like, but it often takes a little longer to cook, so just leave it simmering for another 20 minutes or until the meat melts in your mouth. I also suggest that you make this 2 days in advance as the flavours will develop and the curry will become even more delicious!
Egyptian dukkah is a wonderful blend of nuts and spices. The more you eat it the more addictive it becomes. Serve with toasted crusty bread and olive oil. Dip bread into olive oil, then into the dukkah and enjoy this unique and addictive mix.
