No, definitely cooked in the oven.
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

Go for it clever Karen. It is a good idea.

Thanks MJ I went back to check if it was cooked in the oven or TMX and then forgot to post it here.

I cooked this last night and it was awful.  Inedible.  I cooked it in the TMX and did the optional step of blending up the whole spices.  I think this was a huge mistake because the cardamom taste was so strong it was like eating a mothball. 

I will try it again but I wouldn't add as much cardamom and I would leave the spices whole.

I've been thinking of trying this recipe. Thanks for your tips everyone

I might try leaving the cardamom pods whole but taking them out after cooking...

Tried this last night and it was delicious. I used slightly better quality beef though - diced steak instead of gravy beef or shin beef, which made it a little more expensive. However, because the beef was more tender,  I cooked it for 30 minutes in the TMX and then 30 in the oven while I made something else and it was perfect, probably because the amount of liquid in the curry was right. I think if you cooked it for 2 hours in the oven to tenderise the beef it would definitely need more water.

I also left the spices whole and told my diners to pick them out. No reason for that except I forgot to grind them!  :D

2nd time I've made this now and think its fantastic! Such a wonderful flavour...mind you I love a strong tasty curry not a watery one so the amount of spice for me was spot on! Teamed it with the cabbage and carrot sambhal page 138.... Delish!
Enough for the freezer too :)

I agree! I was so disappointed with this recipe.  I thought it tasted like soap and was inedible. 

Its a shame because everything else I have cooked from this book has been excellent
