I was all set to post a chammanthi recipe, like I promised here. But then with the celebration of  Team India winning the Cricket World Cup happening all around the place, how can I just post a chammanthi recipe? So here’s a spicy beef fry recipe, to balance out all the sweet celebrations :)

I know you must be wondering why I’m posting a beef fry recipe again. I’ve already posted two beef fry/olathiyathu recipe. I dont want to sound like a marketing person saying this product is way different from the usual ones you have seen ;). But let me tell you, there is a DIFFERENCE, try for yourself & you’ll know what I’m talking about.

Also about the phrase “kallu shappu style” ….I’ve never been to a kallu shappu (toddy shop) or even the famous karimbinkala shappu family restaurant. Though kallu shappu is an unfamiliar territory to me, I’ve my connections to get the shappu recipe ;)

Do you remember Sarasa chechy, my amma’s assistant? I got this recipe from her. Her husband is a cook in a kallu shappu. Though Sarasa chechy refuses to admit that her husband has any influence on her cooking style, I believe this beef fry has shappu style written all over it. So those of you who have “shappu” experience please do try this and share your feedback. Hey,that doesn’t mean others cant try this…

So go ahead, try this shappu style beef fry & spice up your victory celebrations :)

Please find the picture of shappu beef fry made by Ramya Rajesh, based on the above recipe. Thanks a lot dear :)

Here you go…

Beef Fry – Kallu Shappu Style
Author: 
Recipe type: Main Dish
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4-5
 
Ingredients
  • Beef – ½ kg, cleaned & cut into small-medium size cubes
For Marination
  • Small onion – 1 cup, crushed
  • Ginger & garlic- 1½ tbsp, crushed
  • Crushed red chilli – 1 – 1½ tbsp
  • Coriander powder – 1½ – 2 tsp
  • Turmeric powder – ¼ tsp
  • Pepper powder – 1 tsp
  • Garam Masala – 1- 1½ tsp
  • Thengakothu (bite size coconut pieces) – ¾- 1 cup
  • Vinegar – 2 tsp
  • Salt
For tempering
  • Coconut oil
  • Curry leaves
Instructions
  1. Marinate the cleaned beef pieces with the ingredients listed under marination (number 2 ingredients). Keep it aside for 15-20 mins. Add 2 tbsp of water to this & pressure cook till the beef is done(the cooking time of beef depends on the type of beef used). Keep the cooker closed for 20-25  mins. Open the cooker & if there is any excess water in the beef, cook till the water is dried completely.
  2. Heat oil in a heavy bottom pan & add tons of curry leaves. Fry it for few seconds. Add the cooked beef. Give it a good stir. Cook on low flame till the beef becomes black in colour. If the beef appears to dry in between, add a little oil & continue cooking. It will take around  10-15 mins. Dont forget to give a stir in between. That’s all …the shappu beef fry is ready!
Notes
I saw Sarasa chechy using coconut oil very generously & I believe that’s the secret behind this lovely dark colour. So let loose your grip on the oil bottle for just once & enjoy this spicy treat ;) Also please try to use crushed red chilli itself, instead of chilli powder. It gives a very different flavor to this dish. Try to use small onions (shallots)& please dont substitute it with onions, it will affect the taste. Dont forget to use coconut oil for this recipe, it’s a must!

  • Kairali sisters

    This one indeed looks like a kallu shap beef fry…Looks awesome, i dont eat beef, so the only thing i can do is just look at the picture and DROOL…

  • http://spoonfulofdelight.blogspot.com Sarah

    This looks mouth-watering! And will be perfect with a few swigs (even coke swigs!) :)

  • sumsu

    wow maria ,though am an eggeterian ,this post is worth trying with some other substitute as well.
    I have made ur kuttanadan duck roast. but i substitute it with soya chunks ,. but it really tasted well.
    so let me try this with soya again .

    • http://www.mariasmenu.com Maria

      Hi Sumsu,

      Thanks dear :) Yeah you can try it with soya chunks, I usually make soya like beef only. Btw, Sarasa chechy was so happy to hear your comment :)

      Cheers

  • http://www.indianspicee.blogspot.com/ Mélange !!

    That looks perfect.What you said is correct about chechi adding coconut oil so much so that the color comes like that.Wonderful.The Kerala beef preparations especially with coconut oil and shallots is the best I believe.Cheers !!

    Hi Maria…wanted to try it on the same day being a cricket fanatic !!! But cudnt manage after long working hours..so have decided to preserve this recipe for Easter .. have always wondered how they get that black color.. will try n let you know.. Thanks.

    • http://www.mariasmenu.com Maria

      Hi Jaya,

      Please do try it and let me know your outcome. I do hope it comes out well :) I guess roasting it in oil on low flame for a long time gives that look. Hope you get this colour :)

      Cheers
      Maria

  • http://www.mariasmenu.com Maria

    Magpie – thanks sweetie :) Please try it & I do hope your husband likes it.

    KS – thanks dear :) May be you can try it with soya chunks…

    Sarah – ohh yes ;) & thank you.

    Melange – Yes, adding oil is the secret behind the dark colour. Whenever I cooked, I added very little oil & ended up with brownish color beef and yes coconut oil is a MUST for this :)

  • Curious

    Hi Maria,
    I must say this recipe looks very authentic. We have some guests coming over, and I was gonna try this recipe today, but decided to try it out at home first before giving it to others. I have a question tho, when you say tons of curry leaves, how much do you mean? Is a handful too much?
    Thanks for the reply.

    -Curious

    • http://www.mariasmenu.com Maria

      Hi Curious,

      Thank you :)

      Adding curry leaves for this curry depends on your taste. I like its flavor very much, especially for beef. So I add loads ;) You can add as per your taste. Anyways a handful isnt too much.

      Hope you like it, so that it can be served for your guests too.

      Cheers
      Maria

  • Catherine

    Hi Maria

    I am new to cooking and love your website.
    Is the Garam Masala that u have mentioned in this recipe store brought. Can I make this masala at home?

    • http://www.mariasmenu.com Maria

      Hi Catherine,

      I generally use homemade garam masala for my cooking. Yes you can make this masala at home. I usually add whole spices such as cardamom, cinnamon, whole black pepper, cloves, fennel seeds & star anise in my garam masala. I dry roast these spices & once its cooled, I grind them to fine powder.

      However you can make this with store bought garam masala also, provided you are using Kerala brands such as Nirapara, Eastern, Saras etc;

      Cheers

    Hi Maria,

    You have an awesome collection of recipes.. Hats off to you!! Jose shud b really lucky to have got u as his soulmate – food is significant :-)

    Btw, lemme ask you. Are u from Ernakulam? I remember having had a senior resembling u at St.Joseph’s Thrikkakara.

    • http://www.mariasmenu.com Maria

      Hi Sindhya,

      Thanks a bunch & I’m forwarding your comment to Jose ;) Yep, I’m from Ekm & I studied in St.Joseph’s too. Great to know that you are also from same school :)

      I passed out in 1997, what about you?

      Cheers
      Maria

  • Sindhya

    I am from 1999 batch, Maria. .

    And I tried ur kozhukkatta recipe on saturday.. Had never made it on my own before.. Used to help mom filling ‘coconut and jaggery mix’ back home. Tat was my only acquaintance with Kozhukatta (apart frm eating). This time I had to try it on my own – neither mom nor Mom-in-law were with me. Got a basic understanding from ur recipe and did it with a few tips frm mom. Taste was OK, but thickness was more. It took longer to get cooked. I think, next time I have to make smaller balls with the dough :-)

    Saw ur gothambu payasam recipe.. Need to try tat soon.. Will let u know. U rock…..

    - Sindhya

    • http://www.mariasmenu.com Maria

      Hi Sindhya,

      Thanks for trying the recipes dear :) For me also, it took sometime to figure out the correct size of dough. I’m sure you’ll get a feel of it soon.

      Hope payasam comes out well for you :)

      Cheers

    • http://mariasmenu.com Maria Jose

      Hi Donna,

      Thanks dear :) Yep, this has a different flavor from the other recipes, I guess its because of the crushed red chilli… Anyways, Its nice to know that you liked it.

  • Mathewgs

    Dear Maria

    The recipe as well as the name and your  innocent story behind  it were so interesting and funny. Next time while in cohin ask Jose to take to some Kallusppu which has the family area and  frequanty visted by expat families.!!!
     your friend forgot to add thengakothu? I coudnt see any in the photograph.

    I am big fan of you. You are spending lot of time to answer each comments .
    May God Bless your efforts.

    • http://mariasmenu.com Maria Jose

      Hi Mathew,

      Thank you! Yeah I’ve asked Jose to take me to karimbinkala or some place like that :) I’ve added thengakothu, its not very visible in the pic. However if you look carefully under the fried curry leaves, you can see it :)

      Its good to know that you like this space & thanks again for the comment.

    Surya

    • http://mariasmenu.com Maria Jose

      Hi Surya,

      Thanks for trying the recipe. As I’ve mentioned in the notes section of the recipe, you need to use the oil generously to get this black colour, also you need to keep it at low flame for sometime. The longer you keep, the darker will be the color of the beef. Hope this helps…

      Cheers

  • http://mariasmenu.com Maria Jose

    Hi Anu,

    I’m not sure why it happened like that. Sometimes the beef tends to dry out when it cools. If that happens, heat a little oil & reheat it again.

    Thanks for trying the recipe.

    Cheers

      Hi Lizz,

      Thanks a lot for your concern. I’m seeing this particular site for the first time, but there are other sites which are also doing the same thing. But I try not to bother with it. Because I believe “stolen property” (irrespective of what it is) wont last long , so :)

      Thanks again dear and nice to know that you like the recipes posted here.

        Hi Maria,

        What you can try doing is, putting water marks images, maybe site address on your photos. And by that anyone who copies that will have the site address also on the photo. 
        You can prevent copying for some extend. 
        Thumps up for you good work and cool attitude. :)

    Hi Maria,
    Wishing you a very Happy and Blessed New Year.
    One doubt abt baking cake – for baking cake microwave oven or the cooking range oven which one is best? if we r buying an microwave oven which brand is good? i want to do baking, grilling , roasting and warming food for these purposes which brand oven you will suggest?
    jeena

    • http://mariasmenu.com Maria Jose

      Hi Jeena,

      Thanks a lot for your wishes dear. I’ve never baked in MW, so I’m not familiar with it. I use a cooking range electric oven and I’m very happy with it. To know more about MW baking, please check out the below post. Hope this helps you to make a good decision:

        Hi Maria,
        Greetings & Good Day

        One more doubt. For baking which oven is best gas oven or electric oven? I like to make cakes and my hubby loves to have grill, tikkas etc. thats why i am asking u and we r planing to buy a cooking range. the one we saw was full top and oven part r gas only rosttrie was electric. I read some where that for baking cakes electric ovens r best. whts ur experience?and which brand u suggest for cooking range? we r planing to buy indesit or ariston
        is these brands r good.
        Also maria, can u plz put some recipe of chicken grill , steak etc.
        Love u
        Jeena

        • http://mariasmenu.com Maria Jose

          Hi Jeena,

          As I’ve already mentioned, I use an electric oven and I’m very happy with it, so I recommend that.

          I dont do much of grilling, so I’m not sure about it.

          I use a brand called Fagor, which is provided by my apartment people. Since we live in a fully furnished apartment, I’ve never bought a cooking range or oven, so again I’m not familiar with the brands.

          Hope you get to make the best decision.

          All the best!

          Cheers
          Maria

    Wanted you to know that I had made this recipe for last Christmas & Easter and it was a hit with my hubby and kids. It actually reminded me of the way my mum used to make the dried beef roast for Christmas and how we sisters used to hog on them :)

    Hi Maria…

    I am not a big fan of beef..but wanted to try out this particular dish..but since you have mentioned that the flavor is mainly from the curry leaves and since it is very difficult to find curry leaves here in Australia I could not make it…but yesterday I got some curry leaves and the first thing I thought to do was to make this…so tried it out today and wholaaaaa…it was superb…Thanks again to you and Sarasamma chechi :)..pls find the pic below…

    • http://mariasmenu.com Maria Jose

      Hi Resh,

      I’m glad that you got hold of curry leaves ;) After seeing your pic, I’m craving for this :((
