Spicy Mogul Steak

Spicy Mogul Steak

Time: 40 mins


  • 4 rump steak
  • 1 onion, small, diced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh garlic, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons gingerroot, grated
  • 1 tablespoon fresh coriander leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons garam masala
  • 300 ml light yoghurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cooking oil


  • 1 Place onion, garlic, ginger, coriander, yoghurt and all the spices together until smooth. Place steak in a dish. Pour over the marinade, turn steak over to make sure that it is coated all over, cover and leave in the fridge overnight, if possible.
  • 2 Heat the oil in a skillet or frying pan, take meat from marinade (reserve marinade) and seal both sides of the meat. Add all the marinade, and simmer slowly for about 15 minutes, turning occasionally - to begin with the marinade looks watery and not that great! After a while it slowly thickens (as the meat cooks) into thick gravy that is spooned over the top of the steak when served.
  • 3 Serve with salads, spiced rice or Gujarati Potatoes.
  • 4 N.B If less heat is required, cut down on the chili powder to 1/4 teaspoon.
