Bhuna Gosht Recipe

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Bhuna Gosht is an exceptional Indian curried lamb main course. It is the “Bhuna” that makes it so special. Bhuna consists of pan-frying the lamb along with certain spices. Because the meat is cooked in its own juices, Bhuna Gosht is a deep, richly flavored dish. It will take you a while to prepare, but believe me, the sitting down to eat part at the end of your labor is well worth it.

Bhuna Gosht Recipe-

  1. In a large skillet over medium flame, heat the oil.
  2. Fry the black and green cardamom pods, cinnamon stick and bay leaves until fragrant.
  3. Add and stir in the ginger, garlic and onion into the mixture. Reduce the heat to low and continue cooking until the onions are a rich, golden brown.
  4. Season with the Kashmiri red chili powder, salt, cumin and turmeric.
  5. Add and stir in the tomatoes and continue cooking until you see the oil separating from the gravy – about five minutes should do it.
  6. Now put the lamb chops into the skillet with the rest of the mixture and increase heat to medium. Continue cooking, stirring until the sauce has created a “glaze” on the outside of the chops, and the meat is cooked about halfway done. This step should take about 20 minutes.
  7. Next, sprinkle the water over the mixture. Put a lid on the skillet and cook for about another 15 to 20 minutes, or until the lamb is fully tenderized.
  8. Remove the lid and add the green chili peppers and cilantro leaves. Raise the heat to high and cook for about another 4 to 5 minutes.
  9. Serve your Bhuna Gosht while nice and hot.
