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

i prepared your pork piralan and it was so easy and came out so well.5 stars for making it so simple. i was so worried about dishing it out myself the trichur pork varattiyatu style.(or we rather call it “porkirachi kalyaanavarattu”(since fam.is given a break backhome).
I came back searching for simple sambar(Being Onam)couldn`t find yours -and have decided to go with Beef Fry (Oletherachi)- seeing the comments now -i cant wait to reach home.
