Pakistani Beef Stew

This is weird. When you're in Pakistan you try your best to stay away from Pakistani food but when you are in a foreign country, you mostly look forward to have Pakistani food. We always love what we can't have.

Such is the story of this recipe. I made Pakistani Beef Stew today which I took from my friend Hirra Pervaiz's blog who is chilling in Thailand these days. Her blog is awesome as I get a lot of nice recipes from it but it is more awesome for you ladies so do check it out by clicking on the image below.

Coming back to the recipe. It is amazing in taste and really simple to make. Fulfilled my Desi food craving and also made my weekend.


1 kilogram beef stew cut into 1 inch cubes

2 medium onions finely chopped

8-10 dried red chilies

1 whole garlic bulb (better to crush the cloves and not chop them)

3-4 tomatoes, chopped

3-4 green chilies

1 cup yogurt

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon coriander seeds

10-12 black pepper corn

2 cinnamon sticks

8-9 cloves

1/2 cup oil or ghee

1/2 litre water

3-4 black cardamoms

about half a medium ginger piece sliced

handful of chopped coriander

salt according to your taste-buds

It is probably one of the most easiest Desi recipes.

Put oil in a pressure cooker on medium heat. Add onions and fry them till translucent.

Add garlic and fry it until fragrant.

Add meat and fry it until the color changes.

Let it cook for 30 minutes on medium heat.

After 30 minutes turn of the heat and release the steam from the pressure cooker.

Uncover the pressure cooker. Turn on the heat to medium again. Add tomatoes.

As soon as the tomatoes get tender add yogurt and mix properly.

Add green chilies, chopped coriander and sliced ginger.

Cover the cooker and cook for 5-10 minutes.

Uncover the cooker and Pakistani Beef Stew is ready to be served.

Have it with Naan, Chapati, Paratha or your favorite type of bread and just let the flavor sink in. Shut up and enjoy the silence of the snow.
