At the heart of this dish is our savory tomato chutney (made with ingredients traditional to Indian cuisine like tart tamarind, mustard seeds, and more), which helps create the vibrant sauce used to simmer our spiced beef, chickpeas, and vegetables until deliciously tender.

This recipe was created in partnership with the wellness experts at WW. To learn more about WW and SmartPoints® visit ww.com

Prepare the ingredients & season the yogurt:
1 Prepare the ingredients & season the yogurt:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Drain and rinse the chickpeas.

In a bowl, combine the yogurt and 1 tablespoon of water; season with salt and pepper.

2 Cook the beef:

Pat the beef dry with paper towels; place in a bowl. Season with salt, pepper, and enough of the curry powder to coat (you may have extra). Toss to thoroughly coat. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned beef in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until browned and just cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.

Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until thoroughly combined. Add the demi-glace (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and 1/2 cup of water. Cook, stirring occasionally and mashing the chickpeas with the back of a spoon, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
