Lets embark on another journey that will tickle your taste buds. You would need to make a masala for this curry lets take a look at the ingredients for the meat curry masala.
Goan Meat Curry Masala Ingredients:

4 Garlic flakes
1 Tea spoon Cumin seeds
1 Table spoon Coriander seeds
1/2 Tea spoon Turmeric powder
2 Tea spoons Poppy seeds (Kus Kus)
5 – 6 Pepper Corns

All the above ingredients have to be roasted except the garlic and ginger with 2 teaspoons oil. Then ground the roasted ingredients with 4 flakes of garlic and a small piece of ginger.
Grind until its liquidated becoming nice and fine. Once your masala is ready you can keep it aside. You can also make the masala while the meat is boiling.
Goan Meat Curry Ingredients:
Vegetables as per Choice:
Slice and dice the vegetables, as you can see the vegetables bellow are sliced and diced randomly as variety is the spice of life!
Goan Beef Curry Procedure:
Wash and clean 1/2 kilo meat and put it to a boil along with two onions one big tomato and 1/4 inch julians of ginger.
You can add salt as per your taste, we do not use too much salt in our food, but you can put in as much as you require, the base is two tea spoons and you can add them in parts one while cooking the meat and one after mixing the masala.
When the meat is cooked 3/4ths add the masala and give the whole curry a boil. Add the amount of water you require for a curry, not too much or it will become too thin.
Once you add the masala and water give the whole beef curry a boil. Test how tough the meat is and when nearly cooked add the vegetables to keep them nice and crunchy.
Remember once you add the vegetables to mix the curry up gently so that you avoid breaking the vegetables into pieces.
Ok so your currys nearly ready, you can add the remaining or required salt, then just a dash of vinegar to boost the taste and your meat curries ready to eat yipee!
