Jungli Maas

Ingredients to make Jungli Maas

  • Mutton/Goat meat - 800 grams (I used with bone, cut into small pieces, from the leg)
  • Dried red chilies - 15
  • garlic cloves 10-12
  • Ghee/clarified butter- ½ cup
  • salt - 1 tsp

How to make Jungli Maas

  1. Heat ghee in a heavy bottomed pan of suitable size, then add the meat and fry it for about 10 minutes.
  2. Add the red chilies (whole) and salt. Cook adding a little water every now and then. The water should never dry up completely else the meat will fry and become dry but do not add too much water as this way the meat will boil.
  3. I added about 4-5 tablespoons every time. Add the garlic cloves when the meat is almost cooked through, so that the garlic gets cooked but still holds its shape.
  4. It takes about an hour for the meat to cook, but the time will depend on the size of the pieces.

My Tip:

Make sure the meat pieces are on the smaller side so it cooks faster. You can leave out the garlic if you want though it does add another layer of flavour and texture to the dish. You do not have to stand over the stove while it is cooking, just keep an eye on it and stir and add water as and when required.
