Beef Curry..........

This is a traditional East Indian beef curry which is full of flavors .Apart from using our famous East Indian bottle masala in our cooking we  also love preparing curries with grinding  Kashmiri red chillies with other spices.The rich  colour comes from kashmiri chillies which is dry roasted with other spices and then ground to a paste.

I have used Meat with bones which actually brings in the real taste of the meat.Have it with rice,handbreads or roti..will go good with everything. you can add any vegetable you want we normally add turnip,bottle gourd but adding potato is my favourite.
1/2 kg beef with bones(preferably fore rib)
salt to taste.
1/4 tsp turmeric powder/haldi

Dry Roast and Grind to paste
3 onions roughly chopped
8-10 kashmiiri red chillies
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tbsp coriander seeds
1 tsp poppy seeds
1 tsp sesame seeds
1/2 tsp fennel seeds
3-4 tbsp coconut powder/scraped dry coconut
1 inch ginger
7 garlic cloves
1 tsp garam masala powder

For the gravy
1 onion chopped fine
2 tomatoes chopped
2 potatoes
curry leaves a sprig
oil as needed.
salt to taste

Cut and  Wash the beef  pieces well then marinate with salt and turmeric and keep side.

Dry roast all the ingredients under Dry roast and grind to paste till fragrant  then add little water and grind to a fine paste.

Heat oil add curry leaves then add the chopped onion fry well till translucent then add the tomatoes fry till mushy now add the ground paste

Then add the marinated beef and potato and add  water cover the lid and pressure cook till cooked it may take about 15 -20 minutes

Or You can pressure cook the meat with salt and water and then just fry all the masala and onion, tomatoes and then add the meat with the stalk and potatoes and bring it to a nice boil and simmer till the potatoes have cooked well.

Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot.
