Saute for few mins and add all the powders ( Chili, Turmeric, Garam Masala and Black Pepper ).
Stir everything together.
On a medium low flame, cook masala’s until raw smell is gone.
Add Coconut Flakes and mix everything well.
Carefully add cooked Beef and stir everything together.
Turn the flame down to medium low and allow Beef to get fried.
Don’t forget to stir occasionally.
Taste Beef fry and make sure the flavor is right, if needed add more Pepper Powder and Salt.
Fry until Beef Fry / Kerala Style Beef Ularthiyathu is nicely fried and got the perfect texture you like.
Serve Beef Fry / Kerala Style Beef Ularthiyathu hot with Rice or with Roti.
I always buy a bulk amount of Beef (10 or more pounds ).
Whenever I get time, slice Beef into medium size pieces and cook them in grated Ginger, Green Chillies, Curry Leaves and Salt, add ginger and chillies according to your taste.
Once its cooked, separate beef liquid/stock and beef pieces in 2 separate containers.
Beef stock is really good in Soups and also gives more flavor if added while cooking Basmati Rice.
Divide cooled beef peices into equal quantities and freeze them for later use, with this you can make different dishes in very less time.
Using beef stock/liquid and a portion of cooked Beef I always make my Mom’s special recipe for Beef Curry.
