Fried Beef Recipe

Fried Beef

Malayalees love beef and you will find it in menu cards in almost all non vegetarian joints. Watch out for Erachi / beef  Ulathiyathu…This dry preparation of meat goes well as lunch or dinner accompaniment or as cocktail snacks.

Beef * – 500 gms (cut into ½ inch cubes)
Shallots (small onions) – 10 nos (sliced)
Ginger – ½ inch (sliced)
Turmeric powder – ½ tsp
Chili powder – 2 tsp
Coriander powder – 2 tsp
Black pepper powder – 1 tsp
Powdered cinnamon – 1/2 tsp
Cloves – ½ tsp
Curry leaves – 3 sprigs
Coconut flakes – ½ cup
Dry Coconut – 2 tbsp (sliced and small pieces – fried)
Coconut Oil – ½ cup
Salt to taste

  1. Combine all ingredients except oil and coconut and smear the meat with it. Mix well and keep aside
  2. Dry fry coconut flakes with a pinch or turmeric powder and salt to golden yellow
  3. Add the marinated meat, mix and cook covered on low flame
  4. Stir occasionally and sprinkle boiling water if required (if the mix is sticking to the bottom of the pan)
  5. Garnish with sliced and fried dry coconut
  6. Serve

*If you are not a beef eater replace it with meat of your choice
* You can also pressure cook the meat first and cook it dry over open fire
* This dish tastes better when refried!

Till next time… happy cooking!
