Tip the spices into a pressure cooker along with the beef, vinegar, salt, turmeric powder and 1 ½ cups of water. Cook on a medium flame until tender (the amount of time will depend on the size and type of pressure cooker you use. Mine is a medium-sized one, and it took about 20 minutes). Alternatively you can cook it in a heavy-bottomed, covered pot. Just make sure to add enough water and check often so the spices don’t catch and burn at the bottom.
