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
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.
