I grew up in a big family, a house filled with giggles and gossips and laughter’s and some occasional not so happy moments and lots of food to sail through with all these talks. My family loves to talk and what can I say I inherited this tradition from them. I am the gal who will always talk to you when you are waiting in the line for your coffee or when you are in the elevator totally trying to ignore me… I talk to the produce guy early in the morning when he is trying to set up the aisle and absolutely thinks I have no one to talk after I leave, I talk to library assistant even when I know I have a huge line of people behind me waiting to get assisted… I talk to you, day after day through this blog. I may not sound poetic but I can make you smile and totally listen to whatever you have to say… And to top it all I cook all these wonderful dishes for you to see and crave and totally make after we are done with our little chitchat! Ready.
Let’s talk about today’s recipe, “Beef Short Ribs Smothered with Yogurt Curry”. Yummy!! Ok so this recipe is inspired by rich and spicy curry dish my dad makes, also known as “Bhuna Gosht” in India. In Indian/Pakistani cooking ‘Bhuna’ is a particular style of cooking where blend of spices along with aromatic ingredients like ginger, garlic, onions etc. are fried in oil till they get a rich color and make a thick sauce base. In this recipe the beef is fried with aromatics and spices using the same method. And ‘Gosht’ means meat. Yogurt here adds a creamy texture and delicate tartness to the sauce. This is a decadent dish with so many well-balanced flavors and texture. Also I cut the rib meat into small bite size pieces, it helps in cooking the meat faster. But if you want you can use bone in ribs here too, just adjust the cooking time. This dish does not take much time to make and it makes for a delicious comforting meal after a long day at work or may be on a lazy day at home.
Wishing you all a week filled with loads of fun, lots of love and may be some deadlines that you will meet, and that little angry boss you will finally please… and above all lots and lots of delicious food! Enjoy!
