Keralan Beef Fry with Coconut Chutney

Loading...
This rich dish is extremely popular in Kerala where the resident Christian community eat beef (unlike the majority Hindu population in the rest of India). It’s also known as beef ularthiyathu - which translates as ‘dry preparation’ in reference to the curry being cooked until all of the liquid has evaporated and the meat is tender. It's served here with coconut chutney, a simple tomato curry called thakkali, green vegetable sambar and rice topped with a spice blend known as podi powder, which contains toasted seeds, lentils and coconut along with the spices.
