- Put the beef and onion in a large saucepan over medium heat and sauté until evenly brown, stirring to break up the meat, about 5 minutes. Add the potatoes, garlic, ginger, and spices and sauté 2 minutes longer. Add the tomatoes and the stock and season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, 20 minutes.
- Meanwhile, make the raita. Mix the yogurt, cucumber, and mint together with a little seasoning. Spoon into a bowl and chill until required.
- Stir the spinach into the curry and heat through 1 minute. Taste and adjust the seasoning, if necessary. Spoon the curry onto warm plates and sprinkle with fresh mint leaves. Serve immediately, with the chilled raita.
Plus Points: A raita, or sauce of yogurt, cucumber and mint is often served with curries to act as a cooling agent against the heat of the chilies and spices. Banana can also be used.
