Beef Stir-Fry Curry

While cooking, turn on the exhaust fan or open a window to dissipate the aromas of this intricately spiced dish. Yogurt adds a lovely creamy tang.

In food processor, purée together hot peppers, chopped cilantro, garlic, onion and ginger until paste.

In wok, heat oil over medium heat; stir-fry pepper paste and curry powder, drizzling in 6 tbsp water, 1 tbsp at a time, as paste begins to stick to pan, until no water remains, about 4 minutes.

Add beef; stir-fry over high heat until seared, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, yogurt and salt; stir-fry until tomatoes are softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in lemon juice and garam masala; cook for 30 seconds. Garnish with cilantro sprigs.
