Beef Pepper Curry, a Kerala style spicy curry. This is a very basic recipe with very very basic ingredients. Infact I’ve used only minimal ingredients. While making this curry I didn’t think of posting it, but my Hubby Dear’s appreciation and good comments made me think otherwise.



               This is a bit spicy Curry. You can adjust black pepper according to your spice tolerance level. Well, black pepper is one of my favourite spices. Freshly crushed black pepper spreads out a soothing aroma. It’s not just aromatic, it has got innumerable health benefits as well. Usage of black pepper even prevents cancer it seems. Well … I’m not getting into the health aspects for now.






Beef  –   ½ kg

Oil  –   3 – 4 tablespoon

Onion  –   3

Tomato  –   2

Green chilli   –   5, or according to your spice tolerance

Garlic paste   –   1 tablespoon

Ginger paste   –   ½ tablespoon

Curry leaves   –   3 twigs

Coriander leaves   –   3 tablespoon, finely chopped

Black pepper powder   –   1 ½ tablespoon

Coriander powder   –   1 ½ tablespoon

Water  –   1 cup

Salt  –   to taste




Heat oil in a pressure cooker.

Add thinly sliced onion and sauté till translucent.

Add salt to speed up the process.

Next add ginger and garlic paste, finely chopped green chillies and curry leaves and sauté till the raw smell evaporates.

Add tomatoes and sauté till it becomes soft.

Now add pepper powder and coriander powder. Sauté for a couple of minutes.

Adjust salt.

Add in washed beef and ¾ – 1 cup water. Mix well.

Add 2 tablespoons of coriander leaves. Reserve the rest for garnishing.

Cover the lid cook.

Each pressure cooker may behave differently.

Normally what I do is, after the first whistle turn the flame to medium low and cook for exactly 20 minutes.

Let the pressure go by itself. The simple yet tasty Beef Pepper Curry is ready.

Garnish with coriander leaves and serve.

This goes perfect with whatever… Ghee Rice, Chappathi or any kind of rotis.
