Choc Chips Chilli


Choc Chips Chilli
adapted from Nigella Lawson's recipe

500g beef cut into three quarter inch cubes
2 cups onions
3 cloves garlic
red chili, seeded
1/4 cup olive oil
3 cardamom pods, bruised
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon dried crushed chillies
1/4 cup tomato paste
1/4 cup tomato ketchup
1 can kidney beans
2 cans chopped tomatoes
4 tablespoon tomato ketchup
2 tbsp tomato puree
50g dark chocolate chips
1 cup water

Preheat the oven to 160C.

Finely chop the onion, garlic and chili.

Heat the oil in a large pan and fry this mixture until soft, add the bruised cardamom seeds, cumin, coriander, cinnamon and dried chillies.

Stir in the cubes of beef turning them in the pan to brown the meat.

Stir in the tomato paste, canned tomatoes, tomato ketchup and drained kidney. Add water and bring the chili to a boil, sprinkle over the chocolate and stir it all together. Season with salt and a little brown sugar.

Put on a lid and transfer to the oven.
Cook at low heat for 3 hours. Once cooked, the chilli is best left overnight to improve the flavour.

Serve with rice or Cornbread.
