Quick Thermomix Beef Curry

Published , Last Updated

Are you looking for a simple weeknight meal that needs very little attention? My Thermomix Beef Curry is the perfect recipe. It ticks all my boxes, easy to prepare, delicious and uses mostly pantry staples. It’s also a great recipe to consider if you do weekly meal preparation or if you need some freezer-friendly meals. Even my children enjoy this dish, although I do reduce the chilli down to only one.

Low Calorie Beef Curry

Low Calorie Beef Curry

I tend to make my beef curry quite regularly as it’s not as heavy as most curries. The dish includes yoghurt instead of cream so it’s lower in fat and low calorie. If you’re following a low carb diet, you will be pleased to know this dish is suitable.

Thermomix Beef Curry

For those of you who don’t know, my family and I spent some time in India last year whilst writing an Indian ThermoKitchen Cookbook. We had a fabulous time learning about spices, and how to cook authentic Indian dishes. I’ve kept this dish very simple so that you can enjoy a curry dish through the week even if you’re short on time.

Take a look at the step-by-step video tutorial for my Beef Curry.

I hope you enjoy this meal it’s one of the simpliest curry recipes I know how to make.

    Hi there – what cut of beef do you recommend for this? Or maybe I should ask, would a cut up chuck roast work or is it too ‘quick’ for chuck (what I have on hand)? ta

    1. Julie Carlyle says:

      Hi Julie
      Chuck steak would be perfect for this dish. The blades seem to tenderise the meat enough in the curry 🙂

    This is delicious. For my chilli-adverse daughter I swapped the child for two tsp sweet paprika. The kasoori menthi (fenugreek leaves) is highly recommended.

      Hi Daniel
      I’m so pleased you enjoyed the curry. Great idea swapping out the chili for paprika for you daughter.
      Happy cooking

    Lovely, I cut it down to 1 chilli but should have put in the second. I didn’t have Cardamon Pods so swapped for 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/4 cinnamon. I think some veg would bulk this up a bit as 4 servings would be a bit of a push.
