Kadhai Gosht

Almost every time we go out to eat Indian, we end up ordering Kadhai Gosht. So I thought why not try making it at home.

I looked at a couple of videos on youtube and searched online for its recipe. This is what I finally did and the result was delicious! Having made this dish at home, we are able to fight the temptation of running down to Southall or Slough every time we crave for Kadhai Gosht… which saves us a lot of money!

Here is what you need:

  • Lamb/Mutton- 500gms (small pieces)
  • Turmeric – 1 teaspoon
  • Onions – 2 sliced
  • Tomatoes – 4 sliced
  • Masala – 1 Tablespoon
  • For Masala: Dried red chillies – 5-6 , Black Pepper whole, Cumin, Fenugreek, Coriander seeds, Kasoori Methi (optional)
  • Yoghurt – 1/2 cup
  • Coriander leaves – finely chopped
  • Mint Leaves – finely chopped
  • Green Chillies – 2-3 slit in half
  • Ginger – long thin slices or grated.


Take a pan, preferably with a good size bottom. Pour some oil, once the oil is steaming hot add your mutton pieces.IMG_1616

As soon as the meat is slightly fried and looks brown add turmeric powder.

Then add your onions and tomatoes and stir.


Put the lid on and let it cook till the onions and tomatoes leave water and nearly disappear; this may take a while (up to 40-50 minutes). Keep an eye on it stir it once or twice in between. I use this time to prepare for the rest of the recipe like preparing the masala and cutting rest of the ingredients.

Lets do the masala first. Take the dried red chillies, pepper, cumin, coriander seed, and fenugreek and dry roast them all. Put them in the pan one by one in that order as the chillies take the longest to roast and fenugreek seed takes the least amount of time.


Keep the pan shaking while dry roasting. Do it in low flame to make sure it does not burn.


Then grind it coarsely in a grinder or use a pestle and mortar


Add kasoori methi and grind again


And chop the rest of the ingredients


Once the onions and tomatoes have nearly disappeared add the yoghurtIMG_1524IMG_1525

Stir immediately after you add curd or even better stir while adding. Then add your freshly ground masala


Add the rest of the ingredients: Fresh coriander and mint, green chillies, and ginger.


Then let it cook till the oil oozes out


Then cook a little bit more…and your Kadhai Gosht is ready!


Garnish with Coriander leaves and finely chopped ginger


And serve with roti or rice and enjoy!
