Beef Khurma/ curry

Friday calls for special meals every week at our place. Main dish is either Biryani or Pulao, accompanied with beef/ mutton gravy and chicken fry. Sometimes its just Pulao, Daal and chicken Fry - Everybody's favorite! Today my Ammi was out for a meeting at my sis's school and it went on for more time than expected. As expected, she was worried about lunch preparations and that too it was a Friday! I soo knew my Ammi would definitly be thinking about this, so i went to the kitchen, decided the menu and got cooking, without giving her a call. I decided on Pulao, Beef curry and Chicken 65! And when my Ammi called me up to say she would be late and that i should prepare something, i cool-ly sed 'Ammi, You just come and eat ;) Lunch is ready!! LOL!

The happiness on my Ammi's face - Priceless! :)
