How To Make Beef Karahi
The recipe starts with browning the meat in a little oil. This will seal the juices inside ensuring soft, tender meat big on flavor.
Next up, make the base sauce for beef karahi. To the browned beef, add onions, tomatoes, garlic, ginger, green chilies and spices. The spices include ground turmeric and red chili powder. Pour in water and beef stock. Cook until tender and soft.
Apart from turmeric and chili powder, you will also need a tablespoon of ground coriander. Let it cook for a few minutes. Now, stir in cream, yogurt and garam masala. If you don’t like cream, you can easily substitute it with coconut milk and cashew cream.
I also like to add a pinch of ground black pepper and ghee. The addition of ghee or butter adds to the richness of the sauce. Beef karahi is traditionally garnished with sliced ginger and green chilies.
