Let’s make an Indian beef curry recipe that is easy to make and full of your favorite curry tastes.

 

This beef with potato curry is also known as aloo gosht.

If you love Indian food just as I do and love those spicy, dry curries that they serve in many Indian restaurants then make this beef and potato curry.

 

The flavors of this dish are so rich they are sure to impress your family or guests.

 

It’s also the perfect dish to prepare if you are serving a crowd.

 

You absolutely don’t want to spoil the fragrant Indian dish by adding any more side dishes to it, unless of course, you want to make a full out Indian themed dinner spread.

 

 

But for a cozy family dinner, a few pieces of garlic bread or a small portion of rice would be more than enough. 


You can also serve the beef and potato curry with some hot parathas.

Meal ideas for the

beef with potato

curry.

  • As mentioned earlier naans, parathas, roti, or any type of flatbreads are a great accompaniment to beef and potato curry.

 

  • You can add a fresh salad on the side, just so you’ll feel better knowing you are eating your greens.

 

  • Since the curry is dry, if you really want to add another dish, I would suggest an Indian dal curry

 

  • And if you are serving with rice, I would also suggest keeping it plain(as in not adding spices or ghee to the rice) and the portion small.

 

Can I substitute beef with other types of meat to make this curry?

 

Yes.

In fact, this is a dish where you usually use mutton and lamb called, alu gosht Kari.

 

The difference is that I’ve used beef since mutton and lamb can be a little too expensive, too rich for our daily meals.

 

Using beef for this Indian beef curry makes it a versatile dish you can try any time.

Storing- refrigerate in a pyrex dish as it would stain any plastic containers. use within 3-4 days.

 

Freezing-you can freeze the curry up to a week.

If you freeze it more than a week the texture of the curry would change because there are potatoes in it.

 

Reheating– remove from the freezer, let it reach room temperature.

Pour 1/4 cup water and microwave it for 3 minutes, stir and microwave for another three minutes until the curry is piping hot. 

 

If you are using the stovetop, add 14/ cup water and heat the curry over low heat for 5-7 minutes.

 

Stop food waste- since it’s a dry curry, you can use it as a filling for wraps and sandwiches.

Make sure to break down the large potato pieces.

A quick wet fried rice with leftover rice or pasta is possible as well.
