Directions

  1. Mix the chili powder, turmeric and salt with 1 tablespoon of oil and rub the mixture into the beef slices. Set aside.
  2. Dry-roast the spice mix ingredients together over medium heat for 1 minute, taking care that they do not burn, then grind them into a fine powder.
  3. Heat remaining oil in wok and put the curry leaves and the dried red chillies each torn in 2 or 3 pieces. Add the beef and coconut chips, retaining some of the chips for the garnish, and saute over high heat until the meat is seared on both sides.
  4. Reduce the heat and add the tomatoes, the ground spices and salt to taste. Stir-fry until the meat is done, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Serve hot, garnished with coconut chips.
