When you think about your Mothers cooking which curry comes to your mind? Well in my case it is the beef curry which she prepares. In my school days every Sunday for lunch she used to prepare this curry. It hot, spicy and is with full of flavors. Rice, curd and Beef Masala used to be the combination. Its simple and very easy to prepare. Beef Masala also taste best with Ghee Rice. If you are looking for any dry recipes for beef check out Beef Stir Fry or Minced Meat Stir Fry.

  1. Hello,

    Is it a must to pressure cook the meat without water? Will the meat cook properly without water? I’m an amateur hence i’m asking questions like this.

    Thank you!

    • Hi Sujay,

      You don’t need to water when cooking pressure meat in pressure cooker. Meat will get cooked as water will ooze out of meat and that’s sufficient to get it cooked. Also it depends on the recipe too. Here we dont require much gravy for the curry. So its perfect without water. Hope i am clear…. Thanks

  2. hellooooo Vimms.. 😉
    i didnt add curd or coconut milk, as u said it wud change the delicious taste…
    but as i didnt have enough time to think, as here it was lunch time, i took a risk by adding potatoes, becos here my girlies love potatoes..
    it was good….
    but next time i will try to reduce the spicyness..anyway thanks a lot…
    I feel u r younger than me, rite.. 😉 so chechi, etc…… 🙂 i called u madame simply…
    pls do update some more beef recipes, because i feel they r less nowadays…

    • Dear Zonia,

      I am not a great fan of potato because of which i avoid it. For this curry i feel u should not add it, because by this recipe you get a good curry.I added potato once but didnt like the taste.

      Vimmy 🙂

    • hmmm okkk Vimmy madame 😉 thanks for the quick reply ..because cooking processing going on..sorrry one more thing, its little hot..i added too much masalas …any idea for lessening it ? 🙁
      it smells good

        • Keeps happening in my house always 🙂 My husband loves to make this and ends up spicy. We enjoy it, but my little one wont be able to have at that time

      • Two ways to reduce if curry is too spicy. Either you can add curd to the curry or coconut milk. But ya the taste change to a different one, but better than having it spicy :-). One more thing, no madam, max only Chechi….gone are the madam days long back 🙂
