Heat oil in a large, deep pot over medium-high heat. Add beef and ginger garlic paste and cook until the beef has browned (4-5 minutes).

Reduce heat, cover and simmer until fall apart tender (approx 3-4 hours). Give the beef a stir every now and then. In a bowl whisk together plain flour and 3 cups of water ensuring there are no lumps. Whisking constantly gently pour the plain flour mix. Bring to boil and cook for 15 minutes, stir occasionally. In the meantime, heat 1 cup of oil. Add sliced onions and fry until golden brown.

Garnish with ginger juliennes, chopped coriander, lemon wedges and sliced green chillies. Serve hot with naan.
