Curry = awesomeness. Spice = awesomeness. This whole recipe = complete and utter awesomeness
Peel and finely chop (or blend) the onion, garlic, ginger and chilli. Combine the resulting paste with the pepper, dried chilli, coriander, fennel seeds and squeeze over the juice of the lemon
Heat the oil in a saucepan and fry the paste until fragrant. Add the beef and brown on all sides. Add the tomato puree and the desiccated coconut and coat the beef.
Splash a little of the stock into the saucepan to deglaze, then add the coconut milk and the rest of the stock. Dice the tomato and throw it into the pan
Cover the saucepan and simmer for 1 hour, until the beef is tender and the sauce has thickened. Spoon it into bowls and serve with a load of different breads! Serves 6
