  3. Pressure cook the meat for 7-8 whistles along with 1 sliced onion and freshly crushed ginger and garlic paste.
  4. Heat oil in a pan, add onions and saute till pink. Add dry red chilies, curry leaves and all the powders.
  5. Add in the pressure cooked meat and give good mash. Cover and cook on a low flame for about 10 minutes. Add in the cooked tapioca and mix well.

My Tip:

Use coconut oil for authenticity. If you want to make it a short process make the meat masala and keep it in the fridge overnight. It will drastically reduce the cooking time.
