  • 1 kg onions {8-10 medium}
  • Garam Masala – 5 Cloves, 3 Black Cardamomn, 5 Whole pepper, 2 bay leaves, 2 star anise

  • 1/2 cup full fat yogurt, whisked
  • 1 bulb garlic, peeled
  • 1" piece ginger
  • 2-3 medium tomatoes
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2-3 whole red chillies, broken into large pieces {optional}
  • 2 green chillies, deseeded if desired {optional}
  • 1/2 cup fresh coriander leaves for garnishing

How to make 'Gosht do piaza' or Mutton Stew

  1. Finely slice 2-3 onions.
  2. Roughly chop the remaining onions & keep aside with the chopped ginger, garlic & tomatoes.
  3. Heat the ghee {or oil} in a pressure cooker. Fry the finely sliced onions till golden brown.
  4. Add the lamb & roast for 5-7 minutes, followed by the yogurt. Roast well till the sides leave oil.
  5. Add the whole garam masala + paprika + red chili powder {if using} and roast for a minute or two.
  6. Now add the remaining onions with the chopped ginger,garlic, tomatoes & whole red chilies {if using}.
  7. Season with salt, mix well then cook under pressure, on low heat, for 25 minutes/or until done.
  8. Open only once cool, i.e. steam dies down completely. Roast well to dry excess water.
  9. Add 2 slit & deseeded green chilies for flavour if desired.
  10. Garnish with fresh coriander. {Remove bay leaves before serving}.
  11. Serve hot with naan, tandoori roti, paratha etc.

My Tip:

Add the green chilies towards the end, once you roast it well. Every palette is different, so the combination of red chilies, whole chilies. We like this very well bhunoed {or roasted dry}. You can keep some curry if you like.
