Hong Kong Style Beef Brisket Curry

Back in Hong Kong one of my favourite lunch places is the food court in Pacific Place in Admiralty, there are lots of choices but there is one restaurant we regularly go to, I forgot its name but I always remember the different curries they serve. One of my favourites was this beef curry served in a bowl with large chunks of potatoes and meat, its spicy but not overpowering, its creamy, it’s so delicious and it is served in big bowls with loads of sauce triggering you to order more rice that your usual consumption.

Today I want to recreate that same flavour where Chinese and Indian flavours mix together to make this excellent very satisfying dish.
