BEEF CURRY IN ROASTED COCONUT GRAVY

In this article I would like to share a very special and tasty beef curry. We all know that how to make beef curry but everyone is using different method to make beef curry. Beef contains a lot of fat which helps to increase the taste of Beef dishes. This is Kerala style traditional dish mostly it is preparing in Christian houses. It will be available in some hotels in the name 'Ammachi Special. Its taste is really amazing and it is very spicy dish. This is my favourite dish and I would like to use as the side dish with mashed Tapioca, Chapati and Appam. I used  Jamaican Pepper Leaf which has a great smell and taste  and it helps to increase the taste of this dish. It also has the taste of coconut slice and Garam masala powder and its gravy is very thick. Its taste is completely a traditional taste and it is looking very attractive with dark Brown colour.
