Masala steak gatsby Picture: Fatima Sydow
Ingredients
700 grams of tenderized steak 
1 onion finely chopped 
2 tablespoons of cooking oil
1 teaspoon of salt 
1 teaspoon of turmeric 
2 tablespoons of roasted masala
1 teaspoon of paprika 
4 tablespoons of garlic and Ginger . 
1 tablespoon of vinegar 
1 teaspoon of sugar
2 bay leaves

Method 
Heat your oil and fry onions first until golden brown add the steak and cook on a medium heat for 10 minutes. 
Add the rest of your ingredients and Braise / cook slowly on a gentle heat for 45 - 50 minutes. 
Stirring occasionally and adding only 3 tablespoons of water at a time. 
Low to medium heat is key to a tender steak.
Next deep fry some chips, you will need about 6 -8 large potatoes - fry in 2 batches, place first batch of fried chips in warm oven to keep it hot. When all the chips are fried, sprinkle with some salt, sauce is 1/4 cup of vinegar warmed in a small pan with a little chili powder and paprika / drizzle this over the chips .
Next get your long bread loaf ready, cutting it sideways / layer with tomato, onion and lettuce, next add all the chips, pressing it a bit down, next the masala steak and some freshly chopped coriander.
The next step is very important: 
Wrap your Gatsby in a big piece of foil or strong white paper very tightly and allow to rest for 5 minutes. 
This process is what gives the Gatsby it's depth of flavour / the wrapping forces all the flavours to mingle.
