Dinner - made a beef madras (converted from the Coles Curtis Stone Chicken madras recipe with a few alterations - will post the recipe tomorrow (it's rather late here due to girls being out a party and can't be bothered typing it up).
Served with garlic cumin rice - as per Bron's garlic rice recipe (on the Thermomix forum) but with cumin added at the beginning as well and used basmati rice so cooked for 16 mins.
Was really yum!

30g olive oil
1 cinnamon stick
2 cm ginger

I didn't quite have the same ingredients so used
fenugreek (1tsp) and cumin seeds (2tsp) in step 1. (for some reason I didn't have coriander seeds)
onion, garlic, ginger as above
added tsp curry powder, 2 tsp garam masala, turmeric, 1/2 tsp cayenne
And I used beef (cooking longer with 1 cup of water)
This was so nice.
