Last Sunday the newly wedded couples gave us a visit at home and I was really worried on what to give them for their first visit. With my Husband, I decided to prepare the my mom’s special beef roast (beef ularthiyath). We quickly arranged all other dishes and started preparing the beef roast for them. The couples enjoyed all our dishes and especially the beef roast. Enough of praising my food, you will get bored. Try this recipe and I am sure you will also love it.

Kerala Beef Roast Recipe preparation.

  1. Cut the beef it into bite sized pieces and wash it well under running water.
  2. Pressure cook the pieces along with turmeric powder, red chilly powder, black pepper powder, coriander powder, garam masala, chopped ginger (1tbsp) and salt with 1 cup of water (6-8 whistles).
  3. Grind the dried red chillies into a fine powder in a mixer.
  4. In a pan, pour 2 tbsp coconut oil and add the ginger (remaining 1tbsp), garlic, green chilly, curry leaves, onion and saute till it turns light brown.
  5. Add the grinded red chillies to the pan and saute.
  6. Add the cooked beef to the pan and mix it well. If needed add some more coconut oil.

      Cheers 🙂

    Don’t know if the beef gave out too much water but after taking from pressure cooker there was just too much curry. I did evaporated as much curry as possible but it felt a bit over cooked. The taste was superb.

    • August 1, 2016 at 12:52 am

      @Varun: thanks for trying the recipe and dropping your feedbacks. Glad to know you loved it.
      Cheers 🙂

  • July 15, 2016 at 9:54 pm

    Hi! Won’t 2tsps red chilli powder plus 10 ground chillies and 3 green chillies make it very spicy?

    • July 16, 2016 at 1:46 pm

      @Shobha: The quantity of ingredients given above is same as what we used at home, but I assure you, it was not very spicy.
      If you feel so, try reducing the number of red chillies. Depending on the variant of chillies used (spicy / non spicy), try adjusting the numbers.
      Let me know about the outcome too 😉

    • October 18, 2016 at 7:08 am

      No the dish wasn’t spicy. I cooked the dish as per the recipe and it was perfect.

    I don’t know what made it look different. May be as I didn’t keep long to drain the water from meat. It came out well. But with more gravy. We loved this thick gravy as well. Thanks a lot for the recipe dear.

    Hello Kitchen Doctor! Thanks a “Beef” tonne for this recipe, had a finger licking, lip smacking and a drooling experience. Enjoyed this spicy beef roast with tomato rasam, steaming hot rice, papads and Andhra pickles. Sprinkled the finished roast with fresh lemon juice and it was very very flavorful. Thanks again.

    • August 21, 2013 at 1:28 am

      @Mohammed: its optional and depends on your personal preference. You can add it in Step 4 if needed.
      @Jincy: coconut pieces are optional. I skipped them. If needed, you can include it in step 4.
      @Neha: Salt is added in step 2 along with powders and masalas.
