Spicy Beef Fry
Make this quick and spicy beef fry recipe for dinner on a chilly winter evening. Enjoy with fried rice or plain rice and dal.
Here is the recipe
Beef (boneless, cut into stir fry strips) – 700 g
Ginger garlic paste – 1 tsp
Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp
Green chilies – 4-5
Red chili powder – 1 tsp
Curry leaves – 10
Salt – according to taste
Garlic paste – 1 tbsp
Cumin seeds – 1/2 tsp
Oil – 2 tbsp
Crisped fried onions – to garnish
Lemon wedges – 4-5 (to garnish)
Boiled eggs – to garnish
Coriander – to garnish
In a pressure cooker, heat about a tbsp of oil and add ginger garlic paste and turmeric. Stir and immediately add washed meat. Add salt and red chili powder and mix well.
Once the meat is browned, add about a half cup of water and pressure cook for 5-8 minutes.
Note: You can skip this step, as stir fry cut strips of meat may cook without pressure cooking. But I prefer to pressure cook to speed up the process and also at the same time be very sure the meat cooks through.
If there still is liquid after pressure cooking, reduce it with the meat so the seasonings are retained.
In a non stick pan, add a tbsp of oil. Add cumin seeds and let them splutter. Now add garlic paste, slit green chilies and then curry leaves.
Add the beef to this pan. Adjust the seasonings again if you wish. Add garam masala and mix well.
Remove in a serving dish and top it with fried onions, coriander, boiled eggs and lemon wedges.
Enjoy with fried rice or plain rice and dal.
