DING DING ( Sundried Meat )



1 kg beef from the shank end of the leg  (cut into very thin slices)

2 teaspoons pepper powder  

2 teaspoons chilly powder

3 teaspoons salt                            

1 teaspoon turmeric powder

2 tablespoons vinegar

Wash the meat and marinate with the pepper powder, salt and chilly powder,  turmeric powder and vinegar for 2 or 3 hours.  String the pieces of meat on a string and hang to dry.  (Alternately the marinated meat could be placed on a flat plate and kept in the sunlight to dry). The pieces should be dried thoroughly.  Store in an airtight container to use whenever required at a later date.

To use at a later date, soak the dried meat pieces in cold water for a couple of hours.  Beat each piece with a rolling pin and then shallow fry with a little oil. This goes well with rice and pepper water

  1. Your Ding ding recipe brought back memories of my mum Bridget. She used to religiously and painstakingly marinate and hang out strings of beef in Guntur, where it was not easy to obtain fresh beef when we were kids. The aroma almost assails my nostrils right now as I write. To think I never ever tried it out – guess you have now stirred the longing in me to do so.
    ThanQ dear.
