Heat 1tbsp oil in a pressure cooker and sautee the onions, green chillies and one sprig of curry leaves till done (till the raw smell dies).
To this add the garlic and ginger paste, coriander, black pepper, turmeric and chilli and stir for a minute or so. Add the garam masala. Fry for 2 mins until the raw smell goes and then add the beef.
Make sure the beef cubes are coated well with the masala. Add 600ml (1pint) water. Close the lid and cook on high heat. Once the pan comes up to pressure and starts steaming, put the pressure weight on (according to the manufacturers instructions) and cook at a medium het. Cook for 20 mins (or check timings according to your instruction manual). Turn off the heat and wait for the pressure to release on its own and then open the lid. It would be in a semi gravy state. If there is too much water, put it back on the heat and cook it open, till the water evaporates and the cubes absorb the masala completely.
In a frying pan, heat the rest of the oil, throw in the cooked beef. Sautee it till the beef becomes nice and brown. If you need it dry, you can keep it on for a longer time. I like mine a bit moist.

If you don't have a pressure cooker, cook in a flameproof casserole in the oven at 160C (140C fan) gas 4 for 11/2 hours.
