Cut the cleaned beef into 1" pieces. Marinate with the ingredients enlisted for ~1 hr. Add onion, curry leaves and pressure cook in medium heat until it is done. (Take care not to overcook beef, no need to add water, usually there would be enough liquid once it is done pressure cooking)

Add chilly powder and saute for 10min, stir in tomatoes and nicely cook until it becomes a nice paste. Pour in cooked beef+liquid from pressure cooker and cook open in medium/simmer  heat until the gravy becomes thick and dark brown.
