Recipe by Food Connection

1 pound lean ground beef
1 yellow onion, sliced   
3-4 tablespoons canola oil
1 tablespoon garlic/ginger paste
1 teaspoon red chili powder
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon garam masala
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
3 whole cloves
sea salt to taste
2 Roma tomatoes, chopped
3-4 red potatoes, cut into small cubes (See note)
1 green chili for garnish (optional)
small handful of cilantro leaves for garnish

Heat oil in a non-stick heavy saucepan over medium, add onion and fry until they are lightly golden brown.  Add meat and garlic/ginger paste and cook, stirring frequently, to break up the lumps and to allow the meat to almost dry.  Add all spices (from red chili powder to sea salt) and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook for approximately 10 minutes, stirring frequently.  Then add potatoes and blend well.  Reduce the heat and cook until potatoes are tendered.  Toss a green chili (optional) in a pan and cook for 1-2 minutes and then garnish with cilantro leaves.  Serve with naans (flatbreads) or rice.  Enjoy! 

Note: You can substitute peas or mixed vegetables for potatoes
