Recipe for oldfashioned sweet curry

It has some sort of steak in it, aswell as sultanas & quite a few different spices. Tried some awhile ago, & it would love to make some, it was a taste of the 70's but possibly came from an earlier time. Thanks in advance.

Here is one from my grandmas plunket cook book. Not sure what year it is sorry. But it cost her 5/- . Maybe 60's or earlier... ... ... ... . . 2pound blade or topside steak cut finely. 4 onions, 2 large apples, 3/4c sultanas, 1 teaspoon sugar, Flour, 2 Tablespoons Curry powder, 1 tin pineapple, 1/2c grated carrot, 1 teaspoon salt, 2 tablespoons butter, 2 bananas. Melt butter, fry onions & brown. Add steak well tossed in flour & curry powder. Fry 10mins til brown. Add remaining ingredients & simmer gently for 1 1/2 hrs. Keep turning with a fork

Thanks for that, but I'm sure the one I'm after doesn't have pineapple & definatly not with banana. I also think it has a variety of spices. So if anyone has any ideas, Id appreciate it. Thanks.

Aunt Daisy recipe for sauce

Melt 2oz butter in a pan, add finely chopped onions, 1TBSP curry powder, pinch powdered cloves & pinch cinnamon. Fry, stirring constantly till brown. Add 1tsp salt, add to meat & simmer gently till cooked. (I'd just mix & put into a casserole dish) I think sweet curries always have sultanas & plum jam.

My great grandmother would fry onion and curry powder in some lard, add minced meat then peas, sultanta's and tomato relish (home-made of course) and water. Bring to boil, add salt'n'pepper and thicken with a roux (flour water combo). Very plain by todays comparison but utterly delish!
