Unakka Erachi Olathiyathu

Do you know how to cook dried beef/Unakka erachi? In my childhood days my mother used to prepare it for me often, and it tasted awesome. It used to be one of our childhood favorite. When it’s prepared we used to finish it just like that and never wait for lunch or dinner. This time it was husband behind me to prepare it and I recollected how my mother prepared and gave it a try. It was not as great as my mother prepared, but I can say it tasted good. When my brother took it to his hostel he didn’t know how to cook it. My dear brother this is how to cook unakka erachi. Prepare next time and get the real taste of it 🙂
