Meat Masala

Meat Masala

FoodieChief's Meat Masala along with the epic Karahi Gosht were staple dishes at FoodieChief's restaurant, The Bombay Palace in Batley, West Yorkshire.
This dish is a deeply flavoured, meaty dish in a rich tomato-based sauce. It's perfect for a special celebratory meal such as Eid or dawats.
