Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Marinate the meat sprinkled with salt, pepper and paprika in the lime juice for 1 hour. 

Heat the oil in a Dutch oven, then add the coriander, cumin, turmeric and cardamom and stir until very fragrant, 1 minute. Next add the garlic, sweet and hot peppers, ginger, onions and some salt and pepper. Soften for 5 minutes partially covered, and then add the passata, stock, chutney, bay leaf, cinnamon stick and diced tomatoes. Simmer over low heat, about 1 hour. Remove the bay and cinnamon. 

Add the marinated meat to the sauce and simmer to tender. Wilt the spinach into the sauce. Serve, or cool and store in the refrigerator or freezer for a make-ahead meal. 

Serve the curry with naan bread and/or over rice with a dollop of yogurt for mixing in. Garnish with cilantro and scallion slices.
