Beef Varattiyathu


Beef Varattiyathu

Here is a simple and delicious recipe with beef. This is a spicy beef preparation which is neither a curry nor a fry...its somewhere in between.Beef is pressure cooked and then the gravy is thickened  till it becomes dry and gets well coated with the meat.It is perfect side dish for rice and parottas.

Ingredients

Beef - 3/4 Kg
Chopped Onions-2
Ginger garlic paste- 2 tsp
Chilly powder-1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder 1 tsp
Pepper powder- 1 1/3 tsp
Fennel powder- 1 tsp
Cloves -3-4

Shallots- 1 cup
Coconut slices- 1/2 cup
Curry leaves- a few
Coconut oil- 3 tsp


Clean and wash beef into small pieces. Marinate with ginger garlic paste and all the spice powders( turmeric powder,chilly,coriander and pepper and fennel) and salt keep aside for half an hour. Pressure cook this with chopped onions and half cup of water. Put heat in high and after one whistle reduce to low flame and cook for two more whistles. Remove lid and continue cooking till all the gravy thickens.
Heat oil in a pan and add curry leaves and coconut slices and saute till coconut pieces become golden brown. Add in the shallots and saute till it changes color. Now add in the cooked meat and allow to get roasted. Serve with chapatis,rice or parottas.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy..

  7. hi suja, first time i see dried curry kind of spices..
    we also have our traditional dried gravy (more coconut milk ADDED, then stir in a wok, until the gravy dries up, but it has no curry spices.)
