Chilli beef is one of the most famous indo-chinese dish in Kerela. It can be prepared with less oil, and beef pieces need not be fried. Let’s see the recipe for this delicious dish.

Preparation Time: 5 Minutes
Cooking Time: 25 Minutes
Total Time: 30 Minutes


  • 400gms of beef
  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 2 tbsp tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp red chilli sauce
  • ¾ tsp crushed pepper
  • 2 medium size onions
  • Half capsicum (cut into cubes)
  • 1/2 inch sliced ginger

  • Chopped green chillies (as per taste)
  • ¼ cup beef stock
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tsp cornflour
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp chopped spring onions (For garnishing)


  • Cut the beef into thin strips. Put a pressure cooker over medium heat, add beef strips, and top with soy sauce and salt. Cook for 20 minutes
  • Heat oil in a pan over medium heat and add sliced ginger, garlic, green chillies and onions. Stir fry for 2 minutes and remove to a plate.
  • Add cubed capsicum and stir fry for 2 minutes. Add salt and pepper and then mix and remove them to another plate.
  • Add 1 tsp of oil and add cooked beef. Add beef stock as required and keep aside the rest to make the gravy.
  • Once the beef is heated up, stir fry for a minute and then spread the beef to the sides so that the oil will come in the middle.
  • Add chilli powder and mix it well.
  • Add tomato sauce, soy sauce, and red chilli sauce, and mix well.
  • Add all the mixture to the cooked beef and mix well. Add crushed pepper powder and mix well.
  • Mix cornflour with beef stock and water. Add to the curry, heat up and simmer for a minute. Turn off the heat and garnish with chopped spring onions.

Serve it hot with fried rice, naan or chapati.
