Summer is in full swing, the farmers markets are buzzing and garlic scapes are plenty! An overdose of garlic scapes seemed possible in my realm of things but alas I warn you it was not. Even after two weeks of continuous garlic escapades, I can’t seem to get enough of these very fragrant and pungent herbs. Wait a minute, did I say herb. Is it a herb or is it a vegetable I ask?
My Mum’s Recipe
This is a long overdue recipe that has finally made it on For The Love of Ghee. So, for those of you out there who wanted this recipe, here it its!
This basic beef curry is quite delicious, and yet again easy to make. The prep time is definitely quick. It does however need a significant amount of cooking time. Therefore, I would suggest making this on the weekend, obviously it being a little less mayhem than a weeknight.
Needless to say, it is rather delicious reheated the next day or saved for later in the week. Frankly the curry tastes great, cold or warm, stuffed into a sandwich and served alongside a pickle and chips or eaten warm with a hot slice of toast or roti.
However, I would suggest eating the curry atop a pile of rice with a pickled condiment of choice, a dollop of yogurt and some crunchy side, perhaps pappad or if that’s not available, a small handful of potato chips. Ummmm… Yummm. I made beef curry today and this is exactly how I ate it! I could go on but you get the gist of it. I hope you’re able to make this recipe soon and please let me know how it fairs…
