Whenever I buy beef, it’s a challenge for me to try a new recipe with it. Being a hardcore fan of typical Kerala beef fry, I always end up making that. If you’ve ever tasted the Kerala beef fry, I’m sure you’ll agree with me. The very thought of it just makes my mouth water, huh!
Recently I had a chat with one of my veggie friends.. she was saying she turned veggie, after seeing a butchery very closely. For that matter, my Appa turned vegetarian at the age of 19, because of Ahimsa! Quite often, people are surprised when I tell them that my Appa is a vegetarian. Because a Nasrani (Christian) from Changanacherry, being a vegetarian is almost next to impossible for many! I also had similar feelings in the past but I never succeeded in becoming a vegetarian and I blame this beef fry. All my will power just vanishes with a snap, when a plateful of dark brownish blackish beef fry, flavoured with black pepper, curry leaves, thenga kothu (coconut bits) and coconut oil, do I need to say more?
Since it’s been ages I’ve posted a beef recipe here, I decided to try this recipe halfheartedly. Though beef fry still retains the top slot, this one is a close competition. It’s similar to the beef fry, but the fried coconut just gives a different flavour altogether. If you like beef, I recommend you try this recipe. You can have it as a starter or as a side dish. I had a bowl full of these while watching a movie ;)
