How to make Goshtaba

  1. In a blender, take keema, salt, green chillies, coriander leaves, 1 tsp cumin powder, 1/2 tsp garam masala powder, black pepper powder, 1 tbsp ginger-garlic paste and blend it into a smooth paste. Make small balls and keep aside.

Gaustaba doesn't have red gravy and koftas are not fried in oil...There is special mutton keema for this. But this recipe can surely give you good mutton koftas dish.
