Daging Masala (Beef Masala)

To be honest I didnt know what the daging masala is supposed to taste like. I bought serbuk masala at a whim and since I had it at home i just google up for recipe to try it out.

Google came up with a few hit and the first few links had the same recipe but different sites. I have no idea which one is the original recipe owner so I'm just gonna credit one of it (the first link).

Okay below is my modifications of the original recipe, cause I didnt have some of the ingredients.

400 gram daging tanpa tulang
Cooking oil
1 batang kulit kayu manis+2 kuntum bunga lawang

1/4 biji bawang besar - i use whole onion, because I found more onions gave better flavor)
2 ulas bawang putih
2 inci halia
1 sudu kecil jintan manis - skipped this cause didnt hv any
6 tangkai cili kering

2 sudu kecil rempah garam masala
1 sudu besar serbuk rempah kari
2 sudu besar serbuk rempah korma

1 cawan santan  pekat
2 biji kentang
1 cawan air
2 sudu besar kicap manis
1 sudu besar kicap pekat - i use light soy

Step 1
Blend onions, garlic, cili kering, ginger

Step 2
Tumis kayu manis and bunga lawang, together with blended items

Step 3
Meanwhile make a paste from the masala, curry and kurma powder. Add to the tumisan

Step 4
Once mixed well, add in the meat. I added a bit of water to simmer a bit because my meat wasnt the best cut

Step 5
Once it dried up, add in the coconut oil, water, potato, and kicap. Once it has boiled over twice, or when the meat and potato is ready, add salt to taste. 

I quite like it, and this recipe is definitely a keeper. Would not mind making it again. And maybe next time I will try it with crab - i think it will be super.
