Ground beef korma is a true delicacy…

Finally, I have turned into an early bird and I love the early morning drive. The best part is that I get to see the Sunrise everyday, it’s one of the most beautiful scenes. Yesterday, I couldn’t help clicking a picture of the marvelous sunrise, sharing with you all.


One of my favorite ways of devouring ground beef is by topping it on the pizza crust, ground beef pizza it is. Here is my second favorite dish with ground beef, ground beef korma. The other day, I made this and served with orotti or rice roti. Ground beef in coconut milk tasted so delicious.
