Roti by rotimatic with Beef curry

We all remember the viral video of rotimatic , or at least the Indian diaspora reading this 😀
I was also one among the very many out there who was  totally blown away by this amazing innovation. needless to say I had to have it.
But the wait was long 😞 depressingly long.... so after about 2 years this august I got my very own ROTIMATIC     >>>  YAYYYY!
Yes ! It is simply enigmatic and true to every hype out there , I have been using it for the last few months not only have we been eating healthy , but life is so much easier with work and kids this truly is a blessing ! 
So now to the recipe 🍴🍷Beef curry :
Beef  -1 pound
Red onion - 1 cup chopped length wise
Garlic -1 tablespoon chopped fine
Ginger- 1 tablespoon chopped fine

Fenugreek dried leaves- 1 tablespoon ( very flavorful )
Tomato- 1-2 chopped

Potatoes- 1 cube sized cut
Curry leaves- 7-8
Turmeric- 1 teaspoon
Chilli pwd -1 teaspoon (add spice as needed)
Paprika - 2 teaspoon
Black pepper ground- 1 teaspoon
Garam masala- 1 teaspoon
EVOO-2 tablespoon
Salt to taste

Clean and cut the meat in bite size pieces add 1/2 cup water cook in the cooker till at least 2 whistles let it cool down
Meanwhile heat up a thick bottom pan, add 2 teaspoon EVOO add the chopped red onions and curry leaves cook till translucent. Then add the chopped potatoes
Add the chopped ginger- garlic till raw smell is gone.
Add the paprika,  dried fenugreek leaves , garam masala , black pepper, cook for few mins , then add the cooked beef.

Let the beef cook cover the pan and let it cook on low flame, be sure to be mixing it once in a while so that it does not get burnt .Add the chopped tomatoes let it cook down.
After about 15 mins the beef starts to sweat out the oil . 
Add salt as per taste, and serve with hot rice or Rotis
