Shredded Beef Fry



Don’t let the butcher cut the meat into pieces. Instead buy a proper loaf.

Slice it against the grain into half a centimeter thick rings. Smash them up using a mallet. Rub about 3 teaspoons full of ginger garlic paste, some turmeric and a little salt into these rings. Drop in a whole onion and a couple of garlic pods into it. No need to peel the garlic.


Add a little water and then pressure cook for two whistles on high and then let the cooker continue to simmer on low flame for about 30 minutes.

Open when pressure has subsided and using a strong spoon keep stirring till dry. Keep on smashing the meat against the cooker to separate the strands till you are left with this:


Fry some dry red chilies, lots of garlic, a little coconut and a fistfull curry leaves in oil.

Add the meat and keep stirring. The base will char a little and that is very very good. When its almost done add in a roughly chopped onion. Mix and switch off the stove. The onion will cook in the residual heat.

Enjoy this as a meal in itself or as filling for a yummy sandwich. Or even better add some chopped tomatoes, onions, cucumber and olive oil to make an amazing salad.
