  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 6 bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon coriander seeds
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 large onion, quartered and thinly sliced (2 - 2 1/2 cups)
  • 6 large cloves fresh garlic, minced (2 tablespoons)
  • 2 tablespoons finely diced fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F163°C. Season chuck roast cubes evenly with salt. Heat oil in a large Dutch oven. Sear cubes in batches, browning on all sides; remove from pan.
  2. Add cinnamon, bay leaves, coriander and cumin to pot; sear until fragrant. Stir in onion, garlic, ginger, garam masala, cardamom, tumeric and cayenne. When onions become transparent stir in tomato puree and seared cubes. Put lid on Dutch oven and place in oven until cubes are tender, 5-6 hours.
  3. In a small saucepan, warm cream until hot to the touch; stir in saffron, cover and set aside.
  4. Remove pan from the oven and place on the stovetop. Skim excess fat, add saffron cream, yogurt and cashews; simmer over low heat for 10 minutes. Remove cinnamon sticks and bay leaves; serve with rice.
