Beef Ularthiyathu/ Beef Fry
1. Beef - 3 lbs (buy a tough inexpensive cut with some fat)
2. Onion - 1 chopped fine
3. Garlic - 1 pod chopped
4. ginger - 1 inch piece chopped
5. Meat masala - 2 tsp crushed(cardamon,cinnamon,fennel,pepper,cloves,star anise)
6. Coriander powder - 3 tbsp
7. chilly powder - 2 tsp
8. turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
9. Vinegar - 3 tsp
10. Salt - to taste
11. Coconut slices - 1/2 cup
12. Oil - 2 tsp
13. Shallots - 3 sliced thin
14. curry leaves - 2 springs
Mix together the meat ,chopped onion,ginger,garlic,vinegar,chilly,coriander and turmeric powders, meat masala , curry leaves ,coconut slices and salt (All ingredients other than shallots and oil)
Cook this meat mixture without adding water (the meat will give out some water as it cooks).
This will take around 20 - 30 minutes. Towards the last 5 minutes cook in an open pan if there is gravy.
Once cooked the mixture should be almost dry.
You can freeze or refrigerate the meat like this for later use.
To fry the meat add 2 tbsp of oil in a pan and saute the shallots until golden .
Add in the cooked meat mixture and stir fry on medium flame until it is browned well.
This will take 2o minutes or so.
Add pepper,salt or vinegar as needed.
