From the Test Kitchen

Served over a bed of fragrant, vadouvan-seasoned rice, our beef and carrots also get dynamic flavor from the spicy, sweet, and savory Indian tomato chutney they cook with in the pan. To bring it all together, we’re finishing the dish with a drizzle of bright, creamy cilantro sauce.
