The New Oriental Style Beef Salan

Tired of the same old Keema (ground beef) ?? Then this is a great twist of  flavors, To give you that oriental taste, yet still having the Desi flavours.. I know our desi husbands will eat some of our favorites a couple times a week, but no matter what they MUST have their desi, salans, currys etc..
(My hubby will be nice a few times I cook pizza, spaghetti's, casserole's but it wont last that long)

So Instead of making the Beef as a simple salan to serve with Naan, I add some Capsicum Peppers (bell peppers) and Carrots to it when its halfway done.. I even add in a few Teaspoons of Soy Sauce and Chinese salt...("youre hubby wont even know lol") By doing so it doesn't taste like curry instead it tastes like your eating out, or like your eating some delicious Chinese Food Especially if your going to serve the meal with WHITE RICE.
 So all the ladies out there that don't have a clue of what to cook for their so called Desi hubbys. This is a great idea! Its cooked in just no time and you're whole family will enjoy the Meal..xx
