Easy Beef Curry

Beef curry is among my oldest daughter’s favorite dishes. She loves to eat it with rice. Normally we do it with brown rice to make it healthier, although it is better to eat it with white rice and even better to eat it with a rice called Pilau (basmati rice with spices) I even put caramelized onions on top and some raisins when I am cooking and thus has a sweet touch.

Lately people are very interested in Indian food, and this is not exactly a very spicy food and can be enjoyed by many people who don’t eat spicy food.

Fabulous Egg Curry

Taste of eggs mixed with aromatic Indian spices, but keeping in mind the tolerance level of Western tastebuds – that’s my Egg Curry.

This curry can be eaten alone or can be eaten with pieces of Spanish/European hard bread as well as with traditional Paratha, Roti or Naan breads from the subcontinent.
