MAKING
1. Take a skillet and add fat or oil into it. Saute the onion it until it becomes tender.
2. Blend in the beef suet and cook it slowly until suet completely gets rendered and onion gets disintegrated into the fat.
3. Add garlic, meat and salt.
4. Saute until the meat cubes go brown on both the sides and stir frequently to blend the meat with the fat and onions.
5. Combine cumin, Tabasco, and chili powder with the meat and cover it with the boiling stock.
6. Cover and cook it over low heat for about 2 ½ hours by stirring it at odd intervals. The stirring is done to prevent the mixture from sticking.

9. Move the mixture into warm bowls.
