INGREDIENTS:                  
 Beef: 500 g(undercut)
Onions: 2 (sliced)
Ripe tomato: 2

1. garlic : 10 pods

9.  salt :  to taste

Oil: 3/4 cup.

METHOD:
 Slice beef into fairly large pieces, against the grain .Using a mallet or the back of a heavy knife, flatten each piece .This makes the beef tender, and  hence cooks fast.
Grind masalas 1 to 9, marinate beef with this for 1 hour.
Heat oil, fry sliced onion brown & remove.( browning  onions  well  gives  the dish a nice rich colour)
In the same oil, fry the beef, a few pieces at a time & remove.
In a pressure cooker, put in fried beef, fried onions, sliced tomatoes & a cup of hot water, salt, cover and pressure cook for 10 minutes..
Gravy should be thick. Good with  rotis.
