Aromatic Masala Steak

This Aromatic Masala Steak, is deliciously fragrant and moreish.  Perfect for any season, all year round.

Like many of my readers know, I am a self confessed fussy eater.  I have many foods that I just do not eat.  Curry, that is loaded with tomatoes is one food I don’t eat.  So, many a time, I would recreate a dish to suit my taste.  That is exactly whatI did with this Aromatic Masala Steak, a dish I learnt from my dear mother in law.  She always fussed, and worried, when I couldn’t enjoy a dish she prepared for the rest of the family. This particular dish, she loves making as an accompanying array of dishes to a regular, Khurri Kitchri for ‘Jummah Lunch’ (Friday Lunch), when I am with them.

She usually would add a tiny bit tomato to this dish, just for me. I have come to making this dish, using Tomato paste instead.  Either way, both variations are super delicious, and can be enjoyed all year round.  Another variation you may like, if Steak is not what you prefer, Is to use Lamb cuts or Chicken.

Here I share this recipe, with steps to make it a little easier to understand.  I will drop a few step by step pictures as well, to refer back to, and the entire recipe without the pictures.

Would this be a Steak Dish that you would try?

I look forward to hearing from you, either in comments section below or via any of my various social media platforms.  Please do also take a moment to rate this recipe further down this blog post.

Notes by Foodeva Marsay
*  This recipe works well LAMB OR CHICKEN.  Chicken will need less time to cook, as compared to steak or lamb.
* Add 1-2 Grated Tomatoes,  if more gravy/saucy end result preffered.

    1. A regular Sunflower oil was used. But yes, you may substitute with any you prefer, but do keep in mind, taste and flavour will be different/altered. However, if you are comfortable with flavours from those oils mentioned, then go for it. Happy Cooking!
