Beef Curry

This is a recipe which my mom prepare's.

Beef with bone 1 kg
Onion: 2 big Sliced
Shallots: 10-15 sliced
Ginger 50 gms chopped
Garlic 50 gms chopped
Green Chilly 4-5 no's
Curry Leaf : 2 sprig
Chilly Powder: 1/2 tsp
Turmeric: 1/4 tbsp
Coriander powder: 2 tbsp
Garam Masala: 1 tbsp (this is a mixture of cumin seeds, cardamom cloves, black pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg)
Black Pepper Powder: 2 tbsp
Oil: 3-4 tbsp
Salt as required
Coriander Leaf: 1/4 cup ( You can avoid this, if does not like the taste, but to tell truly this gives a special taste to the curry which my mother prepares)


Cut the beef into square pieces wash and drain the water. Now add the ginger, garlic, green chilly, curry leaf, turmeric powder, black pepper powder, 1/2 tea cup of water and salt to the beef.  Pressure cook this for 3 whistle ( make sure not to overcook because overcooked beef never tastes good, beef tastes good when you get to chew it) and remove from fire

Now place a pan on fire, add the oil then add the sliced onions and saute for 1 min then add the shallots when it is golden brown,  reduce the flame and add the garam masala, coriander powder, chilly powder and saute well until the spices are roasted and the oil starts coming out. Finally add the cooked beef and the coriander leaf (check the salt if required add more) and cook for about 2 minutes. Remove from flame and it can be served hot with appam, rice, chappathi, paratha or even with bread.
