I must admit that we both are thattukada fans.This time on vacation, visit to these shops was a strict no- no becos of the headlines that gave the food chain a rough ride.I wasn't brave enough to give it a try.
So why not make that delicious beef fry at home.Its fascinating to serve it the same way as we get it from the thattukadas.
Oil-3 to 4 tbsp(coconut oil preferred)
Coconut pieces-3 to 4 tbsp
Salt as per taste
Coat the beef with turmeric and 1/2tsp salt.Pressure cook it for 3 whistles.Now open the cooker when it cools down.Let the water evaporate by cooking in it with lid open.Grind together the garlic,ginger and greenchillies.
Heat the oil in a pan.Add the ginger,garlic and chillies mince and let it roast.When half done add the onions ,cuury leaves,coconut pieces and stir fry on a medium flame until cooked.Now add the chilli,coriander,garam masala and fennel powder.Roast it for a minute or two and then add the beef Now mix well.Let the beef coat in the spices on a low flame.Stir well to avoid the masala from burning.It will take 5 to 6 mins to make beef dry.
Serve with appam,parathas or rice!!!!!!!!!
