This recipe is given to me by my best friend. Thanks to her, as it turned out to be super easy and yummy too. The taste reminded me of one of the restaurants we both used to go to have Kerala Porotta and Chili Beef, while we were in College… 
Try this out, I’m sure you also would enjoy it.
Let me know how it turned for you.
Lots of Love,
