Beef Pickle Kerala Style / Erachi Achar

Beef pickle - The most appetizing form of eating meat.
When the rest of the world boasts of beef dishes and jerky they are surprised to find Kerala cow boys have been catering to the needs of the carnivores (people)with indigenous fresh and dry meat ( unakkal erachi)aka beef jerky since ages. Now all those boys have moved to the Gulf in search of greener pastures and the TN boys have taken over from them to supply.
 Kerala, the melting pot has accepted carnivores of all faiths since the time of seafarers. Allowed them to cook meat to their liking without much taboos which has resulted in some of the most sort after delicacies.
Beef pickle mostly made with the sun dried variety can be kept in room temperature submerged in oil for long periods. Then there is the urgent need for pickle that is taken care of by frying the meat to perfection that's what we have done here.
