Beef Curry with Corn

So as I said, I did a lot of cooking this weekend. Here is what we had for dinner tonight. I found the recipe online. But as usual I changed so many things I think I am safe in calling it my own. We love Indian food and I have so far found it really easy to make. I know that some of the ingredients may not be in your spice collection but if you like Indian like we do you might want to invest in these as they are pretty standard and are used over and over. Oh, got so excited to eat I forgot to take a picture. Sorry. I served it with rice and a potato dish I will hopefully post soon.

2 T vegetable oil
1 t cumin seeds
1 half-inch piece cinnamon stick
pinch of ground cinnamon
4 whole cloves
pinch of ground cloves
3 green cardamom pods, cracked open
1 medium diced onion
4 garlic cloves minced
2 t ginger paste
1 t turmeric
1 lb lean ground beef
1 large diced tomato
1 t ground cumin
1 t ground coriander
1 t garam masala
1 t paprika
salt to taste
1 c coconut milk
2 T lemon juice
1/2 cup corn

Heat oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add cumin, cinnamon stick, whole cloves and cardamom; stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add onion, garlic, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and turmeric and cook until onions are translucent. Add beef and brown. Add tomato, garam masala, cumin, coriander, paprika and salt; stir and cook for 2 minutes. Add coconut milk and lemon juice. Stir in corn. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until reduced about 30 minutes.
