We can make Beef masala in different methods and this is very tasty Beef dish. Everyone in my family likes Beef masala very much. Today I used the recipe of my mother which she used to prepare since my childhood. Beef is the favourite item for non-vegetarians so they are trying to get new tastes and variety dishes. Its fat is providing very good taste to Beef and it will be very soft after cooking. This dish has a good taste and smell due to its masala powders. This is delicious and spicy Beef masala but its method of preparation is very simple and easy. It has the mixed taste and smell of Cumin Seeds Powder, Garam Masala Powder, Cloves, Cardamom and Cinnamon. We can serve it as the side dish with chapati, Bread and Appam for breakfast and Dinner. Its gravy is thick and very tasty.
