Spicy Beef Curry Recipe - Kerala Style Beef Masala Recipe

I got so many request from viewers to share beef recipes. The only reason why i haven't shared any is i dont eat them. But when i told that to hubby, he said that he likes them so i can cook it for him alone. I was glad that i can share few recipes of that here so it may help you guys..Today he bought some beef, so i decided to make a simple curry or masala using that and make a biryani too. Hubby told that it tasted really really good and he asked me to make some more recipe too in future..

  1. This sounds lovely. Going to give this a go. thanks for sharing this recipe.


  2. Hey aarthi... Can we use amul cream instead of coconut milk??

  3. @Ttalksno coconut milk gives the flavour

  4. Very very nice, the way you used clear pictures for every stage was genius.

    What would be nice is to also explain if the amount of meat used is more like 1 or 2 kg, then does everything increase proportionately? So for 2 kg meat do I use 4 times of everything else?

    Not a lot of sites have it presented this way, well done and thank you.

    1. yes if amount of meat increases then everything increases
