Its a long time since I shared a recipe on cheenachatti. Here I am back with the traditional recipe of Kerala style Beef Varattiyathu / Beef Ularthiyathu recipe, a signature dish of Kerala Christians, where red-meat is pressure cooked and sauteed with spices and herbs.
Beef Varattiyath preparation
Wash and clean the beef.
Mix all the ingredients in list 1 and keep it aside for half an hour.
Now add a cup of water and pressure cook this for 30 minutes.
Turn of the flame and let the pressure release. It may take around 20 minutes.
In a heavy bottom kadai / fry pan, add oil and splutter mustard seeds.
Then add onion. Fry until the onions become translucent.
Add ginger garlic paste, green chilli and half of curry leaves. Fry well.
Now add all the spices from list 2, one by one and stir until the raw smell goes.
Now open the cooker and transfer the content to the Frypan / kadai.
Keep stirring well not to stick to the bottom.
Keep the flame in high until the water content is fully dried out.
Add the rest of the curry leaves and coconut oil and stir well.
CheenaChatti is a team effort of few like minded people who loves cooking and wish to experiment with tastes in their leisure times. Its all about cooking and nothing else.
The word "CheenaChatti" is the malayalam (mother tongue of Kerala, popularly known as God's own Country) name of the Chinese Wok / frying pan which takes center stage in any kitchen and thus we named our website so!.
