Through The Looking Glass

"See the world through the eyes of a creative contributor who loves to illustrate the small
adventures that life creates. My hope is to put down in words and portraits especially those things that are apparent yet not always on parchment. Today unique thoughts, accounts, illustrations, and experiences may not remain distinctive but satisfaction can still be derived from the recognizable sentiment of them and from the faithful bonds they create."

~Mutton (Goat/Lamb) Curry - North Indian Style~

I have enjoyed this dish time and time again at my friend's house and finally got the recipe from her dad, Uncle Manohar. The next day I was hunting for goat meat at the local grocery store, totally unaware that grocery stores don't really sell goat meat but that the lamb they do sell is a nice substitution! Here is some lamb curry :)

  • Olive oil - 1 tbsp ~ or less
  • Onion - 1/2 of one ~ finely cubed
  • Ginger Garlic paste - 1.5 tsp
  • Tomatoes - 1 small ~ chopped fine cubes
  • Turmeric - 1/4 tsp
  • Red chilli powder - 1 tsp ~ to taste
  • Garam Masala - 1 tsp
  • Meat (mutton) masala - 1 tbsp
  • Salt - to taste
  • Water - 1/2 -1 cup
  • Meat - 2 lbs or so
1. Heat oil and then brown onions. Add ginger garlic paste and cook for at least 8 mins.
2. Add tomatoes and again cook for another 5-8 mins.
3. Add turmeric, red chilli powder, garam masala, meat masala and cook for another 6-8 mins.
4. Place goat meat in pan, then add salt and fry up for 4-5 mins.
5. Pour in the water (more water for more gravy but meat will also add to the gravy), simmer for about 15-20 mins with lid on. Stir in between.
6. After meat has fully cooked, simmer covered, and turn off stove.

~ Enjoy with rice or rotis!
