This is usually served with Turmeric Rice with Coconut. It can also be spread on bread and eaten like sandwich. This recipe also works well with fish.

Ingredients :

    • 600 g (11/4 lbs) lean beef, cut into small chunks
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 2 cups (500 ml) water
    • 11/4 cups (300 ml) thick coconut milk
    • 11/2 tablespoons sugar
    • 1 tablespoon Tamarind Juice
    • 2 teaspoons salt

Spice Paste :

    • 6 dried chillies, de seeded, soaked to soften
    • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
    • 1 teaspoon fennel powder
    • 2.5-cm (1-in) ginger
    • 1-cm (1/2-in) galangal root
    • 5 cloves garlic
    • 12 shallots
    • 1 teaspoon coriander powder

Method :

    1. Bring the beef, salt and water to a boil in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Reduce the heat and simmer until just tender, about 20 minutes. Drain the beef and let it cool. Tear the beef along the grain into fine shreds.
    2. Grind all the Spice Paste ingredients into a fine paste in a mortar or blender.
    3. Heat a wok over low heat, add the shredded beef, Spice Paste and the rest of the ingredients. Increase the heat to medium and cook, stirring constantly until the liquid evaporates, and the beef is completely dry and crispy, about 1 hour. Remove from the heat. Allow to cool thoroughly, then store in an airtight container.
