A flavourful and delicious pilau, topped with a spicy tender beef gravy. Garnished with eggs and fries to make a very enjoyable meal!
First, boil the steak cubes in water seasoned with a quarter tsp each of salt, ginger and garlic pastes and black pepper powder until tender. Drain and reserve the stock which will be used for the pilau later.
Heat the oil, fry the sliced onions until golden. Remove and once they have cooled, crush them. Set aside. In the same oil, add the ginger and garlic pastes followed by the chopped tomatoes, tomato paste/puree, salt and red chilli powder. Cook until the gravy thickens and oil is released from the sides. Add the crushed fried onions and the boiled beef cubes and stir until the meat is well coated with the gravy. Add chopped green chillies and chopped coriander, and a squeeze of lemon juice.
