How To Make Masala Steak Sandwich

  1. For the masala steak, heat the oil over a medium heat before adding the onions and seasoning with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  2. Once lightly browned add the garlic and cook for a minute before adding your spices.
  3. Toast your spices for a minute before adding your tomato paste and sugar.
  4. Cook for 3 minutes before adding a cup of water and bring to a simmer.
  5. Add your pounded steaks to the curry sauce and season lightly with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  6. Cover with a lid, slightly a jar letting the sauce reduce as the steak cooks until tender, about 30 -40 minutes adding a little water as needed.
  7. When the steak almost pulls apart it will be done.
  8. For the chips. Place your fried chips on absorbent kitchen paper.
  9. Combine the garlic powder, paprika and cayenne pepper before sprinkling over the still hot chips.
  10. Make a cheese sandwich by placing cheese between 2 slices of cheese and toasting in the butter and oil until the cheese melts.
  11. To assemble place a toasted cheese sandwich on a chopping board and add some lettuce and tomato, add with your tender steak and spoon over some of the sauce.
  12. Top with some of the chips and more of the sauce before placing another toasted sandwich on top.
  13. Cut diagonally before wrapping in baking paper and letting the sandwich rest for 5 minutes before serving.
