*STEP TWO* when onions are brown, add the garlic and cook gently for 2 minutes

*STEP FOUR* finally add cubed beef, stir well and season with salt and pepper. turn heat down very low, cover the pan and simmer gently for 1 - 1 1/4 hours, adding small amounts of water as required until meat is tender.

Loads of ingredients but so tasty - it is worth it!!

*STEP TWO* make up 1/2 a pint of stock using stock cube, then add the mango chutney and madras curry paste. stir into the lamb and vegetable mixture together with carrots and apricots
*STEP THREE* Bring to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes. mix in the cornflour with a little cold water, then stir into the curry until it thickens and simmer for a further 10 minutes, or until the meat is tender.

Hope these help. will do some more later!! happy cooking!

I am guessing that on the apricot curry the apricots are part of the b choice as dried apricots are not free?

Will have to go shopping to get some more stuff have the usual spices but not all on list.

Thanks again
