This is mild and lovely. I've had great feedback from others who have tried it :)

Chicken Kashmir

My husband has made this for me several times and it's wonderful! The cinnamon adds this lovely aromatic warmth, making this my new favourite Indian recipe! This should serve 6.


125g butter
2 onions (sliced)
10 peppercorns
10 cardamom
5cm piece of cinnamon stick
5cm piece of ginger, peeled and chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1t chilli powder
2t paprika
1. 5kg chicken pieces or breasts
200gm natural unsweetened yoghurt OR 200gm coconut cream


Melt the butter in a deep lidded frying pan (we used a lidded wok)
Add the onions, peppercorns, cardamon and cinnamon and fry until the onions go golden
Add the ginger, garlic, chilli powder, paprika, salt to your own taste and fry for 2 minutes, stirring
Add the chicken and fry until browned
Gradually add the yoghurt, stirring constantly
Cover and cook on a low heat for 30 minutes

This is a very mild curry that uses minced beef.

Beef Keema

2 tab oil or ghee or butter
1 large onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tab chopped fresh ginger
700g mincedbeef
2 1/2 tsp gr coriander
2 1/2 tsp gr cumin
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp salt
450g boiling potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 c plain yogurt
3/4 c whole milk
3/4 c frozen peas
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 c chopped coriander

In a large deep frying pan, heat the oil over moderate heat. Add the onion and cook until starting to soften, about 3 minutes. Stir in the garlic and ginger and cook 1 minute longer. Add the beef and cook until no longer pink, about 3 minutes. Drain off any fat.
Add the coriander, cumin, pepper, turmeric, cinnamon, and 1 tsp of the salt to the pan. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in the potatoes, yogurt, and milk. Bring just to a boil. Cover the pan. Reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Uncover the pan and simmer for 5 minutes longer.
3. Stir in the peas and the remaining 1/2 tsp salt. Simmer until the peas are just done, about 2 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice and the coriander
