A lip smacking dish with simple flavours. Quick and easy home style cooking with minimal preparation. It can be enjoyed with rice or roti.
Prep time : 5mins, Cooking time 10mins
500 gms lamb meat (with/without bones)
1 medium sized onion chopped
2 green chillies chopped
1” ginger chopped
4 garlic cloves chopped
few coriander leaves chopped
few mint leaves chopped
½ tspn red chilly powder
½ tspn turmeric powder
½ tspn kashmiri chilli powder/paprika
3 tbspn curd (lightly beaten until smooth)
1 tspn crushed peppercorns
1 tsp garam masala
¼ cup fried onions (optional)
Salt to taste
Cut, clean and drain the meat nicely in a colander. Place it in a large bowl.
Pulse once in the mixie: chopped onions, ginger, garlic, green chillies, coriander leaves, mint leaves and add it to the cleaned meat.
Take a small bowl, add turmeric, kashmiri chilli powder/paprika, chilly powder and curd. Mix well and add this to the onion-meat mixture along with salt. Marinate and keep aside at room temperature for 20 mins.
Take a wok. Tip in the marinated meat. Cover and cook on low to medium heat. After a couple of minutes, the meat will ooze out moisture. Stir in between and evaporate the moisture.
Once the meat is cooked (cooking time varies depending upon the texture of the meat), open lid, increase heat and sear until till the meat turns uniformly golden brown, taking care not to burn the spices. Tip in little more oil in case the meat sticks to the bottom.
Do a taste teste and adjust salt if needed.
At the final stage, add crushed pepper, garam masala, fried onions, and combine everything together.
Garnish with coriander sprigs. Serve warm.
