Charas Curry


4-6 servings


  • large pan
  • mixing bowl


  • 1-2 fresh red chiles
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp ground pepper
  • 1 ¼ cups coconut milk
  • 2 oz cannabis ghee
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 lb 9 oz lean chuck steak, cut into cubes
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • large handful of fresh cilantro
  • salt and pepper


  • The onions and garlic need sauteeing in the ghee in a pan until golden brown, then the spice paste can go in, and frying continues for another 2 minutes.
  • The chiles are chopped and put in a bowl with all the spices. Adding a little coconut milk helps it come together into a smooth paste.
  • The chopped beef and stock are added, and the pan is brought to a boil.
  • The stew gets left to simmer on low heat for 1 hour.
  • The rest of the coconut milk and the lemon juice are added, and the whole lot gets brought to a boil before serving. Salt and pepper can be added to taste.
  • It is best served with tons of fresh cilantro as a garnish or mixed into the rice. Poppadums and naan bread are essential! If your guests prefer a milder touch, a side order of natural yogurt can be served instead to cool the curry down.
