  2. Season steak strips and add to the pan. 
  3. Toss in garlic and fry for about 1 minute. Set aside. 
  4. Spread mustard on one side of each slice of bread and butter on the other side. 
  5. Top 4 slices of bread, mustard side up, with steak, then cheese. 
  6. Top with 4 slices of bread, butter side up, to sandwich close. 
  7. For the smoor, heat oil in a pan and fry onion for 3-5 minutes. 
  8. Add curry powder and tomatoes and cook for about 10 minutes. 
  9. Stir through chutney and season. 
  10. Fry sandwiches in a dry pan or griddle on medium-high heat until golden on both sides and cheese is melted.

GOOD IDEA: For an extra flavour burst, serve a mixture of mayo and chopped herbs on the side as a dipping sauce.
