  2. I've been on the hunt for that perfect Kerala Beef Dry Fry for years. After many years of trying and testing different methods involving tomatoes, coriander leaves etc, I had almost given upon finding that perfect recipe for the Beef fry lingering in my memory following occasional visits to Kerala. 

    On stumbling across your video, I had the intuition that this would be close to that Beef Fry which always fragrantly sizzled my Heimweh.

    .And Indeed it was!
    Thank You so much for the recipe! 

    By the way, I added some deep fried shallots and curry leaves and also 2-3 pinches of the garam masala and the pepper powder to the dish towards the very end (just before turning the flame off) – it just elevated the magic!
