Add a dash of water if the meat starts to stick.
Add the blended curry paste from the food processor, and stir well.
Check the seasoning and pour in enough hot water to cover the meat.
Reduce the heat, cover the pan and simmer for about 45 minutes.
Add potatoes and continue cooking until potatoes and meat are tender and the sauce has cooked down to a thickish masala.
Serve curry with green onion pancake or boiled rice.

Roll each piece into a 15cm circle.
