Braising the beef

Pat the 2-inch brisket cubes dry with paper towels to ensure it browns properly then heat cooking oil in a pan over medium to high heat.
Cook in batches to prevent overlapping until all the meat is browned, using a pair of tongs to turn the meat.
Once browned, remove from the pot and set aside on a large plate. Season generously with salt and black pepper.



Once done braising, return the browned meat in the pan then add the red onions. Cook till soft and fragrant before adding garlic and tomatoes.
Allow to cook till they form a thick paste then add the potatoes. Simmer on medium heat or till the potatoes absorb the sauce then go in with the carrots.
Turn up the heat, cook while stirring for about 3 minutes then add enough water to nearly cover the pot contents.


Slow cooking

Now reduce the heat to medium, cover the pot and allow to simmer till the beef is tender and potatoes are cooked through. Caution should be taken not to overdo it lest you end up with thick potato soup. Garnish with fresh dhania leaves if available before turning off the heat and plating



Pair with a starch of your choice. I went with plain white chapati.
