Naadan Beef Curry

Beef has always been a big favourite among the Syrian Christian community in Kerala. No occasion is complete without a beef dish. Some of the best beef dishes hail from Kottayam, Tiruvalla and other parts of Central Kerala.

Today, I am sharing a beef curry which is extremely easy and yummy!



Beef - 1kg
Turmeric - ½ tsp
Salt - to taste
Shallots chopped - 5 to 6
Big Onions chopped - 1  cup
Ginger Paste - 1 tbsp
Garlic paste - 1 to 1 ½ tbsp
Curry Leaves - 2 to 3 sprigs
Coconut Oil - 2 tbsp (I used Olive oil)
Meat Masala - 1 tbsp
Garam Masala - ½ tsp
Red Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Kashmiri Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Pepper powder - 1 tsp
Coconut pcs (Thengakothu) - ¼ cup
Tomato – 1


Clean the beef and cut into small pieces. Marinate the beef with turmeric and salt and keep aside.

Pour oil in a pressure cooker and sauté the onions till they turn golden brown. Add ginger & garlic paste and sauté till raw smell is gone. Now, throw in all the spice powders and sauté for a few minutes. Now, add the tomatoes and sauté till oil separates. Then, add marinated beef along with the coconut pieces (thengakothu) into this and combine everything well. Add curry leaves and about 3/4th cup of water and cook upto 3 whistles on a high flame and keep on a low flame for about 15 to 20 minutes. (Depending on cooking time of meat)Open the pressure cooker when the steam is completely released. If there is excess water, reduce it by keeping it on a medium flame till you get the right consistency.

Serve with Rice/Roti/Kerala Porotta.
