Indian Coffee House Beef Cutlet

The Indian Coffee house we have back in Kerala is very famous for their beef cutlets with rose milk…………slurp!!!!. I also love the atmosphere around, especially the Indian Coffee house near Shanghumugham beach and the Spiral one at Thampanoor.

Thanks to my Amma for this very special beef cutlet made with beef and beef and beef and beef as the major ingredient :-) ……..Beef cutlet is my all time favorite and it goes well with almost any food, it can also be had as an appetizer.


Beef: 1kg

Green Chilies- 10

Ginger- 1 piece (finger long)

Red Onions- 3


Curry leaves- a bunch

For the Garam Masala:

Cinnamon: 1 piece

Elachi- 3-4

Cloves- 3-4

Perum Jeerakam (Fennel seeds) - a pinch

Black pepper- 1 tsp

Cut the beef into small pieces and pressure cook them till it is cooked well. Then mince them into smaller pieces in a wet grinder. In the mean time, sauté the green chilies, ginger, red onions and curry leaves. Dry grind the ingredients for the masala and add this to the sautéed ingredients. Saute this mixture till they become golden brown. Now add the minced beef and mix on medium flame for 3 minutes. Further, add mashed potatoes, mix well with beef and switch off the flame. Shape the mixture into oval shaped pieces. After that , soak them in egg white and then further with bread crumbs. The last step is to deep fry them in oil till they turn brown.

Hope this Beef cutlet with thinly sliced onions and a little bit of vinegar will make your taste buds jump around with joy!!!!!!!!!!! (Tulli chadatte ennu)…Verum Vayattil Unniyappam :-)
