We were at a tze char stall the other day and Ben asked me about an item on menu, which is dry fried curry beef. We did not end up ordering it as we thought it might be too spicy for him. I kept that in mind and today, i made my very own dish for him to make it up to him. I think i did a pretty good job, it was very delicious! It is an awesome dish for us as we can never finish a whole pot of curry, this suits us perfectly! Now I am so glad that we didn’t order this dish the other day when we can make our own right in our own kitchen 🙂
