Gluten Free Beef Korma and Basmati Noodles (Dairy-Free Options)
Last Updated on
King Soba sent me tons of their products. I’ve been slowly using them in various ways. In a hurry yesterday to make dinner for just the two of us, I realized rather than using basmati rice, I could use King Soba’s Basmati Brown Rice Noodles instead. They only take 5 minutes to boil. They worked perfectly in this gluten free beef korma recipe. You can use ground beef or bison, or even meatballs! Enjoy!
1/16+ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper, or as desired
2/3 cup water
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream or coconut milk
1/2 teaspoon apple cider or white vinegar
2/3 teaspoon sugar or slightly heaping 1/16 teaspoon stevia
1 teaspoon minced, fresh cilantro or flat-leaf parsley, plus more for garnish (optional)
2 teaspoons brown or white rice flour, for thickening (or more to your liking)
Bring a medium-sized saucepan nearly full of water to a boil. Add basmati rice noodles or the gluten-free pasta of choice and cook until tender. King Soba Basmati rice takes 5 minutes. (You want to shave 1 - 2 minutes off of the normal time to prevent it from getting soggy or breaking apart easily.)
Add the ground beef to a heavy skillet and cook over medium-high heat, breaking into small pieces (scrambled). Continue to cook until no longer pink and drained of any excess fat; set aside.
Preheat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and sauté over until translucent, about 6 minutes.
Lower the heat and stir in garlic. Sauté until fragrant, 30 - 60 seconds.
Add the turmeric, cumin, garam masala, salt, ginger, coriander, and cayenne; stir to combine.
Add the cooked beef, and stir to combine.
Add the water, cream, vinegar, and sugar; stir. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring often.
Increase heat to medium-high. Sprinkle the top with rice flour and cilantro. Stir until thick.
Either add the cooked noodles and toss with additional water to moisten; or serve over noodles. (You can even fry the cooked noodles in a little oil mixed with a few dashes of turmeric for color and flavor.) Garnish with additional chopped cilantro or flat-leaf parsley, if desired. Serve as a main dish or aside other Indian favorites.
