Beef Fry


a (1)

Any dish with beef will be irresistible for non-veg lovers, especially for Keralites. There is a special combination of beef and pazham pori  in some restaurants even though I didn’t try it yet. This fry you can serve with rice, parotta or chapathi. Since it is a dry dish you can consider it as a snack instead of side dish.


  • Beef –  500 gram
  • Onion – 1 big, sliced finely
  • Small onion – ½  cup, sliced
  • Chili powder – ½ tablespoon
  • Coriander powder – 1 tablespoon
  • Turmeric powder – ½ teaspoon
  • Ginger & garlic – ½ – 1 tablespoon, crushed
  • Vinegar – 2 teaspoon
  • fennel –  ½ teaspoon
  • Cinnamon – 1 inch piece
  • Cloves – 4
  • Star anise – 2
  • Garam Masala – 1 teaspoon


  1. Powder fennel, cinnamon, cloves and star anise and keep aside.
  2. Combine the powdered spices, ginger garlic, small onion, chilli, coriander and turmeric powder, vinegar, salt, curry leaves & beef. Make sure that beef is marinated well with the spices.
  3. Pressure cook the marinated beef till it is done. If you want you can add 2-3 tablespoon of water. If there is any water left, after pressure cooking, cook till the water is dried.
  4. Heat oil in a pan and saute the onions, till it becomes golden brown.
  5. Add the cooked beef & curry leaves. If you want you can sprinkle garam masala at this stage. Mix well. Stir over a low flame, till it is roasted well.
