Beef Curry

We are just back from our India trip which was so good, all of us had a great time. Among all the dishes we got to try the one that inspired me to make this dish was the beef curry well I have modified it a bit , but this is a good gravy dish with appam , rotis or rice too.

what u need :

beef cut up-1 pound
onion - 1 cup chopped length wise
garlic -1 tablespoon chopped fine
ginger- 1 tablespoon chopped fine
tomato- 1-2 chopped
curry leaves- 7-8
turmeric- 1 teaspoon
chilli pwd -1 teaspoon (add spice as needed)
paprika - 1 teaspoon
black pepper ground- 1 teaspoon
garam masala- 1 teaspoon
EVOO-2 teaspoon
salt to taste
coconut milk- 1/2 cup

  • Clean and cut the meat in bite size pieces add 1/2 cup water cook in the cooker till at least 2 whistles let it cool down

  • Meanwhile heat up a thick bottom pan, add 2 teaspoon EVOO add the chopped onions and curry leaves cook till translucent.

  • Add the chopped ginger- garlic till raw smell is gone.

  • Add the paprika, garam masala , black pepper, cook for few mins , then add the cooked beef.

  • As beef is going to take some time to cook so cover the pan and let it cook on low flame, be sure to be mixing it once in a while so that it does not get burnt .

  • Add the chopped tomato let it cook down.

  • After about 20-25 mins the beef starts to sweat out the oil , add the coconut milk in the end .

  • Add salt as per taste, and serve with hot rice or chapathi.
