Goan Beef Stew / Pasta with Veggies

Stew is a goan traditional  dish, it is nothing  but veggies & meat are  is boil separately, and then incorporated  well with spices,  it is a side dish of the family for feasts or special occasions. It does have many steps but it is the only dish you need to cook as it is an entire meal in a bowl.


Stew there are various  recipe some add milk, while cooking  and some add three meat  that is pork, beef and chicken,  some  use only beef & chicken as well, even some use corn flour dilute  with water and add for creamy texture but I never tried.


Well today  I share today my mum recipe  which i relish when I was a kids, and she doesn’t  use milk, and when there was feast or any function  my mum use to cook it a day ahead, where she learn from her mum, she believe that it taste better than same day cook.
