Kerala Beef Chilli Fry – Indo Chinese

Lip Smacking Beef Fry, right in front of you. This beef fry was one of my dads creations and my mom helped me to recreate his recipe. Have I told you that my mom is the best cook I know? She’s awesome. My dad an Aeronautical Engineer by profession, was also a great chef!  I remember so many occasions where I would see them both in the kitchen making us Weekend Meals. Of course mom was head chef, but dad would occasionally do his thing in the kitchen on weekends and I LOVED his food too. I miss him a lot.
