Use only ginger when cooking beef then add crushed garlic when frying the onions in the final steps before adding meat and roasting it well---that is authentic Kottayam beef fry

Did I read 1 *cup* of coconut oil correctly? That sounds like a lot.

Reply
Milan Sunil

This is an excellent preperaton. The spices specified here are the only required ones. Never add coriander or chilly powder. It will spoil the real flavor of the beef fry. So super Mariamma. Thumps Up...

A great recipe, especially for a beginner like myself. First day I made it, I thought it lacked masala but that could be just me. My whole family loved it and is asking for more... and it didnt need coriander or chilly. It was still spicy and very good!!!

I was amazed at the good ratings that this recipe got that once I tried it I had to admit that it was the best. I avoided frying it in the end with more chopped onions and cut down on the coconut oil.. result was amazing.

This was an excellent recipe Ms Mariama varghese. We really loved this dish. Could you put in some more recipes but please put more detail as your recipe is very brief and for the novice cook some things have to be assumed. For example you had mentioned half a cocunut for kothu, but we found this to be too much and we used 1/4 cocunut grating and 1/4 cocunut kothu. But the dish was excellent. Do you have any "nadan" crab dishes?? Please put this up in pachakam.com. Generally your recipe is much superior to other recipes in pachakam.com.

I cannot really explain how much I enjoyed this recipe. In fact, I had to even make a lot of it, when I made it the second time, due to high demand from my neighbors. One of my neighbors` wife who never eats beef, started eating beef after she tasted this recipe. Thanks a lot and will look forward to seeing more recipes like this one.
