Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Tourism has shared the recipe of a popular meat dish beef ularthiyathu.
 
Kerala Tourism took to Twitter and said, "Tender chunks of beef, slow-roasted with aromatic spices, coconut pieces, and curry leaves. A recipe for the most classic dish, Beef Ularthiyathu, the stuff of legends, from the land of spices, Kerala."
 
The state tourism also shared the recipe of the delicacy with Twitteratis. The tweet, which has garnered 3,500 likes so far, has received a mixed response.

One said that beef is not Kerala's culture and some termed it as a match made in heaven.
 
Dr Vireandta Jilowa wrote, "Surprised to see it, that beef is being consumed despite BJP government in the Centre."
 
Another user Tatheesh Vijayakumar wrote, "We are not slaves of BJP at the Centre....people eat whatever they like in this state, including beef, pork, mutton and fish."
 
In 2017, Unionminister Harsh Vardhan had said that the ministry has notified the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Regulation of Livestock Markets) Rules, 2017 to ensure that the sale of cattle is not meant for slaughter purposes.

 Regulating animal trade is a state business, but animal welfare is a central subject.  In lieu of this, there was widespread opposition to the order, with many states openly denying to accept the notification.
