    From the Test Kitchen

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