Spicy Beef fry

Spicy Beef fry

You can substitute beef with mutton or chicken but don’t pressure cook chicken

I still can’t believe two months just flew away and School is starting next week , these holidays we were at home and didn’t go to India for the first time in 17 years for summer break …reason , kids have grown up and wanted to enjoy holidays here , I did miss going to India but no complains as this time my niece and nephew Shabana and Imaad had come down from US and kids had a blast with them and not to forget I enjoyed talking to Anees Deedi ( Haseeb sister ) over the phone which I will miss once school starts …. Moving to the recipe , I wanted to cook beef for a long time for lunch and today woke up dreaming of it so decided to make beef masala and started cooking , got a call from Haseeb that he will be home early for lunch , so decided to change my plans and make instant beef fry which requires less cooking time compared to beef masala , I was just adding lemon juice and he entered ( perfect timing )

This dish is spicy and taste good with rice and dal … Haseeb liked it and said beef is spicy but very nice…. sent some to sis house for her to taste , she said she just had a spoon as my niece Rida ate the entire thing and forgot to keep for them as she loved it ….
