Pro Tips by Neha
Use the best quality mutton. The pieces should be pink in color and with bones.
Try to use meat from the hind leg of the goat. They are the best to make curries.
If you don’t have a pressure cooker, you can cook this curry in a normal heavy bottom pan. Just that it will take more time for the mutton to get cooked properly.
You can make the gravy soupy by adding more water to it.
You can skip adding tomatoes and only add curd to this curry. If skipping tomatoes, increase the amount of curd though.
Shaan brand has a Shaan Aloo Gosht Masala. You can use a tbsp of it in the recipe too for a delicious flavor.
You can add some Kasuri Methi at the end for a delicious flavor.
