Indian Beef Rissoles With Rogan Josh Gravy

“Saw this on Huey's Kitchen and the DH was interested but with a few tweaks for dietary reasons. Posting as I plan to make - the changes are I used spring onion for finely chopped red onion and cut brown onion chunky instead of finely and omitted the coriander (4 tablespoons finely chopped). At this stage times are estimated. I have since made this and have done some further changes.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat ovento 180C fan forced (200C normal).
  2. Heat a little vegetable oil in a pan and gently sauté spring onion and 2 minced garlic cloves until tender and then combine with the mince, yoghurt, garam masala, chilli paste, seasonings and 2 heaped tablespoon chopped coriander (I omitted).
  3. Form the mixture into 8 rissoles and flour each one and place on 1 - 2 lightly oiled baking trays and then cook the rissoles in the oven for about 15 minutes, turning after 7 minutes and then drain well (I had very little fat to drain as I used a very lean mince).
  4. While the rissoles are cooking, heat a little oil in a fry pan (he recommended a wok though on the programme he used a fry pan) and sauté the brown onion and 2 sliced garlic cloves until tender.
  5. Add the curry paste with the cardamom, cinnamon, cloves and bay leaves and mix well and briefly cook to toast the spices. and then add about 1 cup coconut cream with the tomatoes, 1/2 cup stock and seasonings and cook for about 5 minutes until reduced quite heavily, adding more coconut cream and/or stock as needed, taste for seasoning.
  6. Arrange the rissoles on a large plate (or individual plates), spoon plenty of sauce over the top and sprinkle with the remaining coriander (omitted).
  7. Serve with steamed rice (I also serve with some steamed vegetables).
