Erachi Ularthiyathu (beef Stir Fry)

This is a typical Kerala dish in every non vegetarian household. The abundance of coconut makes its inevitable presence in every recipe of ours. At times I just have the beef flavoured coconut strips from this curry and I love coconut when it appears in this form. Though I would not recommend it for rotis, I have friends who don't mind having this curry with rotis.
