What you need:

  • 1 tsp cumin seeds 
  • 1 tsp crushed garlic
  • 2 x Halalnivore 8oz Halal Sirloin steaks
  • 2 tbsp olive oil 
  • Half a cucumber cut into chunky batons
  • 6 rotis
  • A small bunch of coriander with leaves picked


  • 4 tbsp tamarind sauce
  • 1 tbsp ginger finely grated or pureed
  • 1 tbsp runny honey 
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée 
  • 1 red chilli, seeded and finely chopped

    How to a make it:


    STEP 1

    Make the tamarind sauce by combining all the ingredients in a pan with 150ml water. Simmer, stirring regularly, until it’s thickened to a ketchup-like consistency. Leave to cool in a serving bowl, but combine 1 tbsp with the cumin seeds and garlic and brush all over the halal sirloin steak. Leave the steak to marinate for 10 minutes, or up to 2 hours if you have time.

    STEP 2

    To serve, heat a griddle pan. Brush the steak with 2 tsp olive oil, then griddle for 3/4 minutes on each side for medium. Lift the steak onto a plate to rest, while you wipe down the griddle pan and then cook the cucumber batons, in batches, for 30 seconds or so on each side.

    STEP 3

    Warm the rotis. Slice the rested steak into strips, stuff into the rotis with tamarind sauce, griddled cucumber and coriander leaves.
