Al’s Meat Chilli Fry

meat chilli fry

I met Alicia when I lived in Goa. She was my bestie for the 2 years i lived there. At that time I didn’t know to cook much and would love when she would feed me all her specialities. One of my favourites was her Beef chilli fry and would crave to eat it. She is a Tamilian Christian and had such wonderful different recipes.


Our husbands got transferred and we moved to different cities but remained besties forever. Everytime someone visited her city, she would ask Vish, what should I send u and i would say beef chilli fry. And soon a dabba would be at my place.


I dont cook beef at home but have been craving this dish, so i thought why not make it with mutton instead. Got the recipe from her and realised that it’s such an easy dish packed with wonderful flavours. Dedicating this one to Alicia. Cheers to our Goa days
