I love rice and so does my husband. We try to find different ways to prepare and enjoy this wonderful food. Through time, we found hundreds of recipes, some simple and some exotic, and have enjoyed preparing them. We've found some real winners, which I have published on this blog and some that are not so great, which are in my personal "do not" repeat folder. I have created this site to share those memorable dishes - which are all about this wonderful food called "rice".

2 large tomatoes (chopped)
1 onion (chopped)

In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients for the marinade.  Add the lamb/beef and rub the marinade thoroughly.  Allow to marinade for 30 minutes.
In a food processor or blender, add onions and tomatoes, process until well blended. Add butter to a large skillet and melt.  Add garlic and ginger; stir fry gently.  Add bay leaves, coriander, tumeric garam masala and chilli powder.

Add the meat and the marinade. Continue to cook and stir for approximately 2 minutes. Reduce heat and cover.  Allow to cook for 30 minutes stirring occasionally. Add salt and pepper to taste.  Check sauce, do not allow to dry out.  Add a little water (few tablespoon) if necessary.  Cook for another 15-20 minutes.  Serve over basmati rice.
