Sauce Bolognese( Bolognaise)

This sauce is usually used along with pastas. Originally from Bologna (Italy). This is a creamy rich sauce usually made of beef meat. Other common ingredients are onions, celery, carrots, tomato puree, wine, cream etc. I've added some spices for extra spicy flavour. Here it goes...

Onion - 1 nos
Garlic cloves Minced (minced) - 2
Chilly powder - 1 tbsp
Celery - 1 stalk
Carrot - 1 nos
Beef - 500 grams
Milk -1 cup
Tomato puree - 1 cup
Chicken stock cube - 1 nos
Pepper - 1 tsp
Basil and parsley (chopped) - 1 tbsp
White wine - 1/4 cup
Cream - 100 ml
Salt for taste

In a stew pot, add olive oil, When slightly hot, add finely chopped onions, minced garlic and chilly powder and saute for 2 min. Add finely chopped celery and saute for another 2 min. Add finely chopped carrot and finely chopped beef and saute for 5 min. Add the remaining ingredients except cream and salt and cook for 1 hour or until its almost done( the required consistency must be obtained). Now turn the flame to low heat, add the cream with constant stirring, add salt and serve hot with pasta. You can cool the remaining sauce and store in refrigerator.

Traditional recipe will not have chilly powder in it. I used cooking cream (thin ones). Can add oregano or other spices if you'll prefer that flavour. For penne pasta with sauce bolognese recipe click here
