Beef Boti Fry

Bite size pieces of steak cooked with fresh and colorful vegetables is not only eye pleasing but very appetizing to the palette as well. Not very spicy yet delicious. Serve it with roti, pasta, rice or pita and enjoy!


Beef                                1.5 lbs bite size pieces
Garlic                              1 whole head
Onion                              1 big
Green onion                     3-4 Cut into 1 inch pcs
Habanero/green chili        1-2
Bell pepper                      1/2
Tomato                           1 medium
Salt                                 1 tsp or to taste
Black pepper                  1/2 tsp
Garam masala                 1/2 tsp
Oil                                  3 tbsp


Peel the garlic cloves and crush them roughly.
Slice onion thickly.
Slit green chili in the middle.
Cut green onions in 1 inch sticks.
Slice bell pepper in 3/4 cm thickness.
Heat the oil in the pan and add meat. Fry the meat for a couple of minutes and add crushed garlic to it. Keep browning the meat until all the moisture dries up and oil separates fro the meat. Sprinkle salt and black pepper and add habanero chili.
Add a cup of water and cover. Lower the heat and let cook till meat is tender. Meat cooking time varies so you may need to add more water.
Increase the heat and start browning/caramelizing the masala. You need to stir it every minute or so to make sure the masala doesn't burn.
Once the meat has browned and all the water has dried, turn the heat off. Immediately add onion and bell pepper, cover and let it steam for 5-7 minutes. Open the lid and add green onion and tomato. Stir and sprinkle garam masala and serve with chapati or naan.

When cold it works beautifully as a filling for a wrap or sandwich.
