Sometimes when I tell people that my appa is a pure vegetarian, they ask me whether I’ve considered being a veggie. I’m almost about to say yes, but then at that precise moment, my mind dishes out the picture of deep dark beef fry topped with thengakothu (coconut bites), followed by chemmeen roast (prawns roast) and meen varuthathu (fish fry) and that list goes on. HHmmm, its not worth being a veggie, beef fry is worth more than that ;).
I guess its been more than a year that I posted a beef recipe here. It’s mainly because I’m trying to reduce the quantity of red meat and even if we buy it occasionally, I automatically make beef fry even without considering any other options. So this time when I bought it, I wanted to try something new and ended up with this. Again, this recipe is from my mother in law. It’s a two in one dish, you get veg & non veg all at once. That sounds nice, eh :)?
The recipe can be put in the everyday cooking category. It tastes great with rice or chappathi or even appam. Btw, did I tell you that I’m planning to put together some recipes for everyday cooking. When I put together the recipes together, there has to be many pages, so I guess it can be called a cookery book ;) Any suggestions/ ideas?? Yeah, I want to make a complete menu (breakfast, lunch, tea time snack & dinner) of simple everyday recipes for each day for one month. If you ask me, the biggest challenge in cooking is, to make everyday stuff interesting and healthy. That’s how the whole idea started. Anyways, its still in the planning stage. Let’s see how it goes.
For the time being, we will move on to the recipe, ok?
