Kerala Beef Curry



Kerala Beef Curry – the all time favorite!

Beef is not predominantly consumed in India. However, it is more popular in the South, especially in Kerala, where beef is enjoyed by the masses with a deep passion! Beef Roast, Chilli Beef, Beef Cutlets  are all extremely popular, but the centre of attraction remains the Hot, Spicy and TastyBeef Curry.

It is typically served with Rice, Kerala Parotta, Chapati or other Kerala Rice based specialities like Appams or Pathiri. Here, I share my recipe for Authentic tasting beef curry with the regular beef that is available in most countries to give the closest taste to the Kerala Beef Curry, which actually – as a matter of fact – uses Buffalo Meat.

Use kashmir chili powder for less heat, although for this particular curry we prefer hot chilli powder!

    what happened to the fried shallots and garlic in the beef curry preparation,,want to try it out.

    • Thanks for the catch. I have edited the post. The sautéed shallots and garlic is added along with the spice powders. This step is included in the video. Hope you will enjoy our Beef Curry. Happy Cooking!

    Hello, in the video you add tomatoes but they are not listed in the ingredient list. Is the shallots listed twice an error. Also do you use red onions for your onions. Thanks

    • Hi. Yes, this was an error. The shallots should not be listed twice and we use 2 large chopped tomatoes. I have edited the post.
      The sliced onions are red onions , also sometimes called purple onions which is more effective in this dish than white or yellow(vidlia) onions. Happy Cooking!

        Awesome thanks for quick reply – going to make it today, hope it looks and tastes as good as yours 🙂

  5. Hello
    Could you please tell me which beef cut is used to make this gravy ?

    • Usually I prefer beef from the shoulder cuts… they go by different names would be better to ask the local butcher.

      • I tried this recipe, it was easy and so so tasty.. Thank you so much.

    Hello. The recipe calls for 4 red onions. Is this really so? It doesn’t look like 4 chopped red onions in the video to me. Thanks.
