Gino's Tip

Vindaloo or vindaloo is an Indian curry dish based on the Portuguese dish carne de vinha d'alhos which is popular in Goa, Vasai, the Konkan, Kerala and other parts of India

Step 1 - South Indian Curry

Heat a large casserole pan over med-high heat. Add a glug of olive oil and wilt your baby spinach for 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a serving dish. Now sweat your diced onion for 4-5 minutes until soft and translucent. Now add your chopped English tomato and vindaloo paste and cook for 2-3 minutes, while stirring to avoid catching the spices on the base of the pan. Proceed to add your butternut and coconut milk. Stir to incorporate your spice mix and simmer for 20-25 minutes until the butternut is tender. Thin your sauce with some milk if it thickens too much. In the last 8-10 minutes add your lentils. When done, taste and season with salt and pepper to your liking and finish by mixing in your wilted baby spinach. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

Step 2 - Sesame Steak

Season your sirloin steaks with salt and pepper and rub with your white sesame seeds. Place a large frying pan over med-high heat. Add a glug of olive oil and fry your sirloin steak for 2 minutes on each side until they've had 8 minutes of cooking time in total. Try to get a good sear initially so that your sesame seeds stick to your meat. Remove the pan from the heat and allow your sirloin steak to rest while you're serving.

To serve

Place your south Indian curry as your base and top with your sesame steak.
