1 kg beef recipe

  • 2 large onions, finely chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 3-4 green chilies, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon ginger-garlic paste
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 tablespoon coriander powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin powder
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for cooking
  • Fresh coriander leaves for garnish


  1. Marinate the Beef:
  • In a bowl, mix yogurt, turmeric powder, red chili powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, ginger-garlic paste, and salt to form a marinade.
  • Add the beef pieces to the marinade, ensuring each piece is well-coated. Allow it to marinate for at least 2 hours or overnight in the refrigerator for better flavor absorption.
  1. Cooking the Beef:
  • Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Add chopped onions and sauté until golden brown.
  • Add chopped tomatoes and green chilies.

  • Add the marinated beef to the pan. Mix well and cook on medium-high heat until the beef is browned.
  1. Slow Cooking:
  • Reduce the heat to low, cover the pan, and let it cook slowly. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
  1. Cook Until Tender:
  • Continue cooking until the beef is tender and the masala has thickened. You may need to add a little water if it becomes too dry during the cooking process.
  1. Garnish and Serve:
  • Once the beef is tender and the masala is well-cooked, sprinkle garam masala and garnish with fresh coriander leaves.
  1. Serve:
  • Namkeen Beef is ready to be served. It pairs well with rice, naan, or chapb
