Ingredients :
  1. Beef Ribs - 1 kg
  2. Onion - 3
  3. Green chillies - 2 slit
  4. Ginger - 2 inch piece chopped
  5. Garlic - 1.5 pods peeled
  6. Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  7. coarsely Crushed black pepper - 1 tsp
  8. Chilly powder - 2 tsp heaped
  9. Coriander powder - 3 tsp heaped
  10. Crushed Meat masala - 1 tsp (cardamom , fennel, cinnamon, cloves and pepper )
  11. curry leaves - 3 springs
  12. vinegar - 2 tbsp
  13. Oil - 2 tbsp
  14. Potatoes - 2 peeled and cubed

The Beef in India takes pretty long to cook , so I have precooked it before making the masala.
Precooking the beef with minimal spices makes it versatile enough to to cooked in larger quantities and stored in the fridge or freezer. This can then be made into stews, gravies, frys , masalas etc.
Wash and drain the beef and add to pressure cooker.
Add in 1 onion roughly chopped and 1/2 of the garlic cloves and 1/2 of the ginger plus the green chillies and crushed peppercorn.
Add the vinegar, turmeric powder and salt to taste and mix with a spoon.
Do not add any water. Cover and pressure cook for 1 whistle.Once the pressure is filled lower the flame and cook for 2 minutes.
Turn the flame off and let the meat sit in the cooker undisturbed until the pressure is released by itself.Meanwhile make the masala.
Heat oil in a frying pan and add the remaining onions thinly slices, ginger and garlic chopped, curry leaves and salt to taste and saute until the onions start to brown.
Add in the chilly and coriander powder and the meat masala and stirfry untl the raw smell is gone.
Open the pressure cooker and add the beef and gravy to this masala , add in the cubed potatoes and simmer for 30 minutes or until the beef and potatoes are cooked.
Serve with roti or Ghee Rice.
