Erachi Upmav / Rava Beef Biryani

Are you thinking yet another Beef Recipe? This recipe is one which you could make with any kind of meat or even with vegetables. This is something that I have ate when I used to visit my relatives' houses for weddings in certain regions of South Tamil Nadu. This is served for breakfast on the wedding day. Then again I was reintroduced to this as a leftover makeover at R's place. My MIL used to make this for breakfast when we had leftover curries - Mutton or Beef. This is a quick and easy and moreover tasty breakfast. All you need is some leftover curries - preferably a Nadan Curry (Traditional Curry) with Gravy.



Coconut Oil- 2 tbsp
Onion- 1 small (chopped)
Ginger Garlic paste- 1 tbsp
Chilly Powder- 1/2 tsp
Rava (Semolina)- 2 cup (lightly roasted)
Beef Curry Gravy- 2 1/2 cup
Beef Pieces from the Curry- 1 cup
Water- 1 cup
Coconut- 1/2 cup (Grated)
Salt- to taste

1. Heat oil in a pan and saute onion till transparent.
2. Add ginger garlic paste and saute until the raw smell is gone.
3. Add the Chilly Powder and saute for another minute.
4. Add the Coconut and mix well. Let it cook for a minute.
5. Add the Beef Curry Gravy, Beef Pieces, Water and Salt and let it boil.
6. Add the Rava and mix well. Close the lid and cook a couple of minutes until the rava is cooked.


Your special breakfast dish is ready to serve. I would suggest that you use a spicy curry - any meat or vegetable or tofu/paneer - to make this upmav. It is worth to make a spicy nadan curry just to make this dish and not have to wait for a leftover.
