Sha-Kam Pa --- Flavor of Dried Beef

Sha-Kam Pa

The Bhutanese Cuisine is considered to be spicy with lots of *Dried Red Chilies* but i prefer less spice which is not hot. But i love the cuisine i am served because of its uniqueness in taste and the method pf preparing. This Shakam pa *Dried Beef* culinary goes Awesome with the Bhutanese red rice.

    • Red dried Chili
    • Raddish
    • Finely chopped onion
    • Tomato *if u like*
    • cooking oil  
    • salt
-> Cook 5-6 pieces of dried beef in an *pressure cooker* for about an 30 mins, to it add little amount of water *depends on the amount you are cooking the beef*
->when the beef is cooked properly, to it add Chili *de-seed if you prefer less hot* and not necessary to remove the chili stem.
->to the cooked beef add the finely chopped onion, cooking oil, and tomato *if you prefer*
