Once living alone, the cooking skills can come handy. Especially if living in another country. The taste and flavour of mother’s food will surely be missed.

As a try to match to this, today let’s try our hands at NRI Beef Masala, exclusively dedicated to the NRIs.


Beef, washed, cleaned and cut into small pieces – 1 kg

Onion, chopped – 1 no

Ginger garlic paste – To taste

Chili powder – 1 tsp

Coriander powder – 2 tsp

Turmeric powder – A pinch

Garam masala – To taste

Curd – 2 tsp

Pepper powder – To taste

Coriander leaves – Few sprigs

Curry leaves – Few sprigs

Salt – Accordingly

Coconut oil – Accordingly


Take the beef pieces in a bowl. To this add chopped onion, ginger garlic paste, chili powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder and garam masala.

To this add curd and mix well. Allow it to marinate for half an hour.

Then add salt and curry leaves to it and put it in a pressure cooker to cook and wait until 5 to 7 whistles.

Now pour the mixture to a non-stick pan and keep in flame. Allow the gravy to completely dry out. In the meanwhile, add coconut oil to the beef in intervals.

Garnish with coriander leaves and serve.
