    Any Kådu Binådu or just binådu recipes?? Love your content!!

    • Hafa Adai! No binadu recipes, unfortunately. For kadun binadu, do you know how to make kadun katne? Look for my beef shank kadu recipe. Use that as a guide (but without all the veggies and noodles). Brown your meat, then add water; simmer until the meat is tender. I love taro or yam in kadun binadu, so add them as you would potatoes. You can also add coconut milk as well.
