This Mughlai dish is one of my favorite dishes! It is traditionally cooked and even served in a wok-like dish called a Kadhai. Serve Kadhai Gosht with hot Chapatis (Indian flatbread) or Naans (tandoor baked Indian flatbread).
Prep Time: 3 hours
Total Time: 3 hours
- 1 kg lamb/ mutton cut into 2" pieces
- 1 cup yogurt
- 2 tbsps garlic paste
- 2 tbsps lemon juice
- 2 tsps garam masala (see link below for recipe to make your own)
- Salt to taste
- 3 tbsps vegetable/ canola/ sunflower cooking oil
- 4 green chillies slit lengthwise
- 2 tsps coriander powder
- 1 tsp cumin powder
- 2 medium tomatoes chopped fine
- Ginger julliennes to garnish
- Fresh chopped corainder to garnish
- Mix the lamb/ mutton with the yogurt, garlic paste, lemon juice, garam masala and salt to taste, cover and allow to marinate for 3 hours.
- Heat the oil in a Kadhai (or any other wok-like pan) on a medium flame. Add the green chillies and fry till they stop spluttering.
- Add the lamb with its marinade and fry, stirring frequently, for 5-7 minutes.
- Now add the tomatoes, corainder and cumin powder and mix well. Sprinkle some water over the meat, cover, simmer the flame and cook till the meat is done. Check occassionally and add more water if needed to prevent sticking and burning. Ideally this dish has a minimal amount of thick gravy.
- Turn off fire, garnish with ginger and coriander leaves and serve with hot Chapatis (Indian flatbread) or Naans.
