Beef Curry


div>I had mentioned about our Coorg trip in one of my previous posts. Lilian aunty, our host, had prepared this wonderful Mutton Curry that was served with Paapputtu, a steamed rice dish. Aunty had promptly shared the recipe with me. When my parents and sister were here, I prepared this dish. The only difference is that I used Beef instead of Mutton. The beef version also turned out to be as good as the mutton curry. You can prepare this with chicken as well.
