Tasty Beef Fry

This one is almost like the kerala beef ullarthu. Ive given it a tasty twist with my favourite ingredient- soya sauce . Ofcourse, kerala beef ularthu without any twist tastes simply out of the world- but for a change!!! and Ive used big onions instead of shallots....and sadly no curry leaves  : (

Beef cut in cubes: 3/4 kg
Onions: 3 diced
Ginger diced: 2 tbsp
Garlic diced: 2tbsp
Coriander Powder: 2.5 tbsp
Chilly Powder: 1 Tbsp
Pepper Powder: 2 tsp
Turmeric Powder: 1/4 tsp
Garam Masala : 1 tbsp (get the recipe here )
Soya Sauce: 1 tbsp
Salt and Oil: as required
Mustard: 1 tsp

Heat Oil in a pressure cooker and splutter mustard seeds.
Saute Onions, ginger and garlic till brown.
Add all the masalas and saute on low flame till the raw smell goes.
Now mix the beef properly into the masala.
Pour 2 cups water and pressure cook for 20 minutes on low flame after the first whistle.
Transfer the cooked beef and gravy into a heated kadai and let the gravy dry up.
Add the soyasauce and saute again for a minute.
Serve hot with rice.


  1. machan, i have tried various recipes, but this is by far the easiest.
    i am not sure if you need 2cups of water for cooking the beef though. do you think it makes the meat more succulent?

    1. it depends on where u buy ur beef. In chennai, I need to use that much water, but in Kerala if I use that much water, the beef will come out minced...so please reduce the water depending on how the beef is in ur corner of the world. and are u by any chance, Ardhra?
