Beef millagu curry

Beef millagu curry is as the name says it all,is a recipe from coorg . Cubed beef along with  red chilli powder and beef masala powder is coated well and marinated for half hour . Not much hassle and you will get a perfect  aromatic beef curry cooked up at a nick of time. 

To tell you the truth my beef curry never turns good even after so much trials. "Aj always complains beef tastes like boiled meat ." Ummande curry kootyal mathi avulla " ( can't get enough of (his) mom's curry ..) i had to admit his mom prepares better than me .. That's when our neighbour  jumps into the story ... she fell sick one day and my mom gave a little of our curry to her .. next day her kid came over to return the pot and she frankly said "itha beef curry theere sherryattilla!!" ( beef curry was not tasty ) . Well mom was a bit taken aback her honesty... hehe she did say the truth though .. immediately her mom came over ... still recovering  and apologized for her daughters remarks ... and to our surprise  she also said we dont know how to prepare  beef...

Now My mom who was despirate  to learn their recipe and she asked her to come over and prepare dinner for us ... and she kindly excepted ... beef millagu curry and porottas... the best combo ..
And when Aj sat down for dinner . He went staright to the kitchen to see if i had really made the curry ..
