Zeera Boti

Zeera Boti or Tawa boti can be made both with Beef and Chicken.I usually double the meat and stack away a box in the freezer for laters. Very simple and easy to make.

1 tray of boneless veal/chicken steaks or any lean cut
1 can petite deced tomatoes
1 bag frozen bell peppers chopped or fresh if you have on hand
1 bag of frozen chopped onions or fresh if you feel like chopping
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp Red chilli powder
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
1 tbsp Cumin powder
1/2 tsp Paprika
1 tbsp Ginger Garlic paste
1 tbsp Whole Cumin seeds
1-2 Whole green chilli
2 tbsp oil

Chop up the veal into really small cubes. Its done better while still somewhat frozen unlike pictured below.

In a pot, add the meat, dash of salt, Ginger garlic paste and the green chilli. Cover with water and start cooking.
 Add the whole cumin seeds and continue cookin until the meat is tender.
Once the meat is tender, turn the heat to high and burn all the water.
 So it looks dry like this.
Now in a skillet, take a tbsp of oil and add the onions, bell peppers and tomatoes.

 Add all the seasonings.
 Simmer until all is mixed well and water starts to evaporate.
 Now add the meat to the veggies..
 Cover and cook for about 15 minutes. Serve with Parathas!
