Raman Prasad’s Beef Korma

Oooohhh baby this was good. I hope this is what it’s supposed to look like. I might add less water next time. I got Raman Prasad’s SCD cookbook “Adventures in the Family Kitchen” a few weeks ago and wanted to try this Indian recipe called Beef Korma. It called for yogurt so I decided to wait until I was comfortably eating the SCD yogurt each day to make sure I didn’t have any problems with it. I’m now up to 3/4 cup per day of yogurt so I went ahead and made this recipe. It was really tasty, I highly recommend it! Also pretty easy to make. Marinate some beef in yogurt with spices (I buy stew meat so you don’t have to cut it up, and I marinate the night before in fridge). Cook some onions and spices in a large pan, add the meat, add water and simmer. Add some tomatoes and simmer a little more. Then it’s ready to eat! I hope all his recipes are as delicious and easy as this one.

I also ordered a few other cookbooks along with this one from my library. I can’t afford to buy them all, so this way I borrow them, copy out recipes, and send the books back. I figure if I lose any recipes I’ll just borrow the books again. The Breaking the Vicious Cycle had a few good recipes but seem more advanced for what I want to try right now (lots of cheddar cheese used in them). I also got Dr. Mercola’s “Total Health Program”, Kendall Conrad’s “Eat Well Feel Well”, and Jodi Bager and Jenny Lass’ “Grain-free Gourmet”. They all look like they have a few recipes in them that I’ll make. Some of them are a little extravagant for my liking. I’m more of a one-pot dinner kinda gal. I’ll make sure to post about which ones I try and which pass the taste test.


I have been following the Specific Carbohydrate Diet since January 2008 to recover from Celiac disease. As part of the diet, I don't eat grains, sugar or potatoes and prepare all my meals from scratch.
