Choose Your Own Protein: "CYOP" Masala Stew

Updated: Sep 5, 2021

This is just highlighting different possibilities of the Masala Beef Stew. Currently, there is a huge Covid-19 crisis happening in India. Every kind of medical equipment is running short; oxygen tasks are hard to find. To support these efforts, many organization have been raising funds.

I wanted to support those efforts as well and made a call on my instagram handle (click here) where I offered this recipe and my homemade LCY "CYOP" Masala Stew Mix pack to anyone who donated $10.00 to UNICEF efforts to support India.

Many thanks to all who did 🙏
