Spicy Meat with Bell Peppers

Cooking for me is like a sine wave. There are times when I am in such a cooking spree that I innovate and experiment my culinary skills and come out with many ideas and totally feel out of the world but there are times when the "peak" is down and I just warm up the frozen foods which I stock in my freezer to fill my stomach. Guess I am in the positive wave side now and am coming up with ideas, especially with the Meat. Its been almost a month since we celebrated Eid-ul-Adha and my freezer is stocked up with lots of meat now..... so are my posts sitting in my drafts ! So came up with this recipe where the spicy Meat is first cooked, then fried a little, and then added to the vegetables and Soya sauce. The Indian style cooked meat mixed with the prime Chinese ingredient Soya sauce and Bell peppers had a very good blend of both these cuisines. Your palates would love it !

Meat - 1 kg
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Chilli powder - 2 tsp
Ginger paste - 1 tbsp
Finely chopped Ginger - 1 /2 tsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Water - 2 cups
Tomato paste - 1 tbsp
Olive oil - 2 tbsp
Red Onions - 2
Green Bell pepper - 1
Yellow Bell Pepper - 1
Soya sauce - 2 tbsp
Green Chillies - 3

1. Trim the excess fat from the meat. Marinate with turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon chilli powder, ginger paste, and salt and set aside for about half an hour. Cook the marinated meat with 2 cups of water. I pressure cooked it to speed up the process. 
2. Remove the cooked meat from the broth. Use this broth for some other purpose or just in a noodle soup.
3. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a pan. Fry the meat pieces. Add the tomato paste, 1 tsp chilli powder. Keep turning its sides to brown them evenly.
4. Slice the red onions about 1 cm size. Cut the bell peppers lengthwise.
5. In a separate pan, heat the oil and saute the red onions, bell peppers for 3 minutes. Do not over fry them. They have to retain their crispness and color. Add the soya sauce, chopped green chillies and  chopped ginger. Saute for a minute.
6. Fold these vegetables into the meat and cook for a minute again. Serve warm with breads or rice.
