  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and fry the beef for 3-4 minutes, or until browned. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  2. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until the onion is soft. Add the ginger, chilli powder and curry powder and fry for 1 minute. Return the beef to the pan and stir in the chopped tomatoes, potatoes and stock. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 60 minutes, or until the beef is tender and the sauce develops a thicker consistency. Add a little water if it becomes dry. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the rice according to the packet instructions.
  4. Divide the rice between plates and top with a serving of beef curry.
