Beef Curry

Beef curry on a cool autumnal afternoon. A spicy something to enjoy while you watch the colorful leaves find its way to your porch.

It is a special day for me and I am in a cheerful way. Glad for the little things in life which brings happiness. Another anniversary is here and birthdays and anniversaries make me feel very good and I am sure you feel the same. It's an occasion to cook specials, do spring clean ups, pretty up the place with flowers and bust out the prettiest sheets to spread. I even gave my little champ here a bear hug and big smoochie. He is behaving quite well you know. Letting me sit here and chat with you while he plays with his toy 'Thomas.'

You have a wonderful time until we come back with another recipe for you.

Beef Curry


1.This is an easy method,if you want to have a look at the authentic recipe, see the beef roast/fry recipe and follow the steps till you cook in the pressure cooker.
2.You could go easy on chilli powder and pepper powder if you want it mild.
3.If you don't eat beef, try this with lamb or mutton.
