How to make it
- In a large pot, heat 2 Tbsp of vegetable oil. Saute onion and garlic until softened.
- Add the ground beef and cook until it is no longer pink.
- Add the carrots and potatoes, stir a few times, and then add the water and boullion.
- Bring to a boil, and simmer for 15-20 minutes.
- While the meat is cooking, make a roux out of the remaining 3 Tbsp oil and the flour: heat oil in a medium skillet until shimmering. Over low-medium heat, add flour and stir, cooking until the flour is blended and takes on a pale golden hue.
- Add curry powder and chili powder, using the back of the spatula to blend it into the roux. The mixture will be powdery and dry.
- Take 1/2 C of the hot liquid from the meat pot and slowly add it to the curry-roux mixture, stiring constantly to form a smooth paste.
- By spoonfuls, add the curry paste back to the beef mixture, stirring to dissolve.
- Add salt.
- Simmer the curry for 20-30 minutes, until the sauce has thickened and the beef and vegetables are tender.
- While curry is finishing up, bring rice and water to a boil in a pot, immediately reduce heat to low, cover the pot with its lid, and cook for 20 minutes.
- Serve curry with rice in shallow bowls. There should be approximately twice as much curry as rice in the bowl.
- 1) Curry mixes vary in ingredients and intensity, so adjust the spices accordingly.
- 2) Like a stew, there should be a lot of sauce, so if the curry is too dry, add more water.

I made this recipe awhile ago and I've made it many times since. My family loved it! c: But since I am not to fond of eating red meat I used chicken breast instead of the ground beef.eri in palm habor loved it
