Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, and continue cooking and stirring until the onion is very tender and dark brown, 15 to 20 minutes more.
Stir in the garlic, green chillies, ginger paste, cardamom pods, cloves and cinnamon sticks. Cook and stir for an additional 3 to 5 minutes, until the garlic begins to brown.
Stir the cumin, coriander, turmeric, garlic granules, cayenne pepper and water into the onions. Simmer until most of the water has evaporated and the mixture has thickened.
Stir in the beef stewing steak and cook on medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until the meat is cooked through and tender, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
