Ostrich Steak with Tamarind and Ginger

Ostrich Steak with Tamarind and Ginger

Aazam says: “Fusion cuisine is all about balance and passion. It’s not just a matter of adding corriander or lemon grass to a dish.” This dish has been enjoyed by one of the famous ‘Two Fat Ladies’ Clarissa Dixon-Wright.

Serves one


  • 1 sliced ostrich steak
  • 1/2 sliced onion
  • Freshly chopped julienne of ginger
  • Finely chopped broccoli florets
  • 1 tbsp of Minaras (Tamarind and Mint paste)
  • 1/2 glass of water
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil


Add the olive oil to a hot wok then add the sliced onion and ostrich strips. Cook until the meat is sealed. Add the ginger, broccoli, tamarind, mint paste and water. Cook for approximately 4 minutes until the stock is reduced by about two thirds.

Serve on a bed of basmati rice or with chips.
