Khatta Meat

Khatta meat gets its sour flavour from spoonfuls of amchur or dry mango powder. This Kashmiri mutton recipe is relatively easy compared to the other dishes of the Kashmiri cuisine. This dish is best enjoyed with rice but if you are aiming to make the gravy thick, you can have it with roties as well.


Bhuna Gosht

Bhuna gosht is a traditional Indian mutton recipe usually made with goat's mutton. Mutton is slowly cooked under low heat with a blend of different spices which adds to the richness of the dish. The dish is cooked till all the juices of mutton are released and mixed with the spices to give a slightly dry velvety gravy.

This is a special mutton recipe for you straight from the kitchens of Awadh. It is known as the Khajur Gosht which literally means ' dates mutton'. This special mutton recipe is prepared with dry dates which makes it an absolute delight for your taste-buds.


Dal Gosht

This spicy dal gosht, as the name suggests, is a combination of three things- fragrant spices, lentils and the mutton. The mutton is first cooked along with the spices which adds spicy flavour to the dish. Then it is cooked with the dal which not only adds to the consistency of the curry but also gives it a unique, lip-smacking taste.
