Beef Curry garnished well
Preparation time : 4 hrs (approx) | Serves 5 persons

This Beef Curry Recipe is from Pakistani cuisine which is bit spicier than continental beef curries. Its cooking is quite easy as it only needs to marinate for few hours then cook on low heat. It would give more good taste if some coal smoke is given to the curry after cooking.

2 big onion (boiled and mashes)
1 ½ tbspn red chili powder
3 tbspn ginger paste
4 tbspn raw papaya paste
