Kerala Beef Curry

This is the probably first time I am making beef curry.  I usually make stew with chuck roast but thought would make something spicy. Its really easy but the only thing that took time was making the meat tender.  I pressure cooker the meat with spices to tenderise it and then cooked in a wok to finish it.


2 lb beef chuck, cubed in chunks
1 tbsp coriander powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp garam masala
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp vinegar
1 tsp ginger garlic paste

Pour some oil in a pan, add the marinated meat and sear it all over.  Once meat is seared, you can either cook on the same pot or put all the meat into a pressure cooker.  Add some water just to cover the meat slightly and cook till tender.

To saute

1 yellow onion, cubed small
1/4 tsp mustard seed
1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste
2 green chilli, cut in half
1 sprig of curry leaf
1 tbsp oil


  • In a medium stir fry pan, add oil and the rest of the ingredients. Saute till onion is browned and then add the cooked meat and mix till all is evenly coated with the onion mixture.  
  • Add salt and a bit more of chili powder if you want it to be spicy.  At this point, you can add some cubed potatoes or leave it out.  Cook till the gravy is desired consistency.
