Quick Beef Curry

Don’t be fooled by the name (Quick Beef Curry), this curry tastes authentic. It got everything a good curry has and more. The beef is tender and the spice mix is just right.

The only reason why it’s done quickly is because most of the ingredients are minced, and the beef is cut into thin bite size.

There are different types of curries out there, but I like this recipe since the flavor of spices is balanced. This curry goes so well with rice or paratha, even pita bread.

There are 300 calories in this curry but you can get the calories lower by using chicken breast, or even fish.
