8 – 10 curry leaves

fresh coriander to garnish


Brown meat in a pressure cooker in a little olive oil. Remove meat, add a little more olive oil and sauté onions and garlic on a low to medium heat until the onions are  transparent. Add the ginger and all the spices mixing well. Sauté for a few minutes more. Add the meat back to the pot. Add the tomatoes, a little boiling water and tomatoe paste. Mix well.  Pressure cook for 40 minutes or until the meat is tender. Add the carrots and pressure cook for a further 10 minutes. Chop the meat up and remove the bones. Serve in a hollowed out Banting  bread roll.


If the gravy doesn’t look thick enough and you’ve added too much water, remove the meat and carrots with a slotted spoon and reduce the liquid.
