To grind:

Method:

1.Cut beef and clean well.Add 1 tsp of gimger garlic paste ,1\2 cup water and pressure cook it for 2-3 whistle(see notes).

2.Grind the the three ingredients under " to grind" to a coarse form.Slice onion and tomato,keep all ready.

3.In a big heavy bottomed pan heat 2 tbsp of ghee+oil,add bay leaves,cloves,cinnamon and cardamon and saute for a while.

Note:

1.I usually by very tender beef (called veal) it just take 5-10 mins to cook.Cook according to ur beef variety.

2.For dum,keep a dosai tawa/griddle on stove and place the dish pan/kadai  over it with covered well.

3.Add spice according to ur taste buds.

4.I usually make briyani in pan ,it comes correct for me,if u opt for pressure cooker u can go with it.In that method pressure the rice for 4 whistle or till done.
