Step 1

Wash the beef thoroughly and drain all water.

Step 2

Marinate beef with all the above ingredients and keep it aside for 30 minutes.

Step 3

Meanwhile, boil the tapioca pieces along with salt and a pinch of turmeric until tender. Be careful not to overcook the tapioca(say 95%). Drain water completely and keep the tapioca pieces aside.

Step 4

Pressure cook the marinated beef with 1/2 cup water.

Step 5

Meanwhile, heat a non stick pan and dry roast grated coconut, shallots, garlic and curry leaves until the coconut turns to a nice brown color.

Step 6

Reduce heat and add coriander powder, chilly powder and garam masala powder. Fry for 2 minutes.

Step 7

Grind all the dry roasted items with very little water to form a thick paste.

Step 8

Open the pressure cooker and transfer the cooked beef without gravy to a big pan or wok.

Step 9

Add the cooked tapioca pieces to the same pan, followed by ground coconut paste.

Step 10

Take around 1/2 cup of gravy from the cooked beef and add it to the pan. Mix everything lightly.

Step 11

Cover and cook on medium low heat for 10 minutes stirring occasionally.

Step 12

You can add more gravy from the cooked beef if needed.

Step 13

Remove from fire. After ten minutes remove lid and mix everything thoroughly. Be careful not to fully mash all the pieces. The dish should have some chunks of tapioca and beef.
