Kerala Beef Fry | Beef Ularthiyathu

by jijopeter
Kerala Beef fry or Beef Ularthiyathu is cooked in Nadan style is a unique delicious signature dish of the Christian community in general. You can usually spot the dry beef fry dish during Kerala festive gatherings and occasions. Street vendors in Kerala sell Parotta with Beef Fry which is a hot Thattukada dish both among young as well as old alike. Kerala Beef Fry can be served with both dosa and appams too. We have included a spicy Kerala Beef Fry dish for quick reference. Beef pieces are pressure cooked in a spicy masala and later fried or roasted with onion pieces and curry leaves. Our Kerala Beef fry recipe is well detailed in short simple sentences keeping new comers in mind. Enjoy our Beef Ularthiyathu cooked in Kerala style. The beef Ularthiyathu tastes better based on the beef cut, if the beef meat has fat then the beef fry tastes nice, if the meat is lean then there wont be much taste to the dish. The fat in the beef enhances the taste of the dry beef fry, also it reduces the use of less oil to make the beef Ularthiyathu. Try to use freshly ground garam masala, chilly powder and coriander powder. Also slow cooking the beef will bring a great taste to the dish rather than using the pressure cooker, but if the beef is not a tender cut then it will take a long to cook. Please make sure to cook the beef fry in low heat to get a nice black color.

I am not a regular cook, since my wife is away and I took that as an opportunity learn new things and impress her when she comes back. It turned out to be better than my wife cooking. thanks for the recipe
