Gosht Ka Salan Recipe: A Royal Treat

Gosht ka salan is basically a recipe that comes from the North-Western Frontier province that is now Pakistan. In India, this mutton curry is a part of the Mughlai cuisine. It is often rumoured that gosht ka salan was the favourite dish of Mughal emperor Shah Jahan.

So if an Indian mutton curry can entice the taste-buds of a regal emperor, then we really should not have much doubts about its taste. This mutton curry can thus be called a very royal recipe.

Gosht ka salan is not a very spicy recipe when compared to other Indian mutton recipes. This royal recipe from the bawarchi-khana of the Mughals can now be easily prepared in your own kitchen.
