  • 500 grams beef or mutton preferably boneless
  • 1 medium sized potato peeled & cubed (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon peppercorns, freshly powdered or 2-3 teaspoons of pepper powder
  • 2 medium sized onions finely sliced
  • 1 inch ginger finely chopped
  • juice of 1/2 a lime
  • oil for frying
  • salt to taste
To be fried:
  • 1 tomato chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh coriander

  2. Heat oil in a pressure cooker and fry the ginger for 3-4 seconds and then add the sliced onions and fry them till they turn translucent (pale pink).
