How to make it

  • For Marination.
  • Mix yogurt, chilly powder, 1/2 tsp turmeric powder, mustard oil, salt to taste. and leave it for 45 minutes or overnight if possible. If you are using papaya or the rum you can add it now. (Traditionally we use a young lamb meat from the local butcher shop so no tenderiser is added.)
  • Prepare the Potatoes by adding a bit of turmeric powder (for colour)and salt.
  • In Deep Frying pan or Stove top or Presure cooker dry roast the whole spices sticks of cinnamon, cloves, cardamom. Take the spices out and pound them to become powder.
  • This works two ways Firstly add aroma to the cooking vessel as well as roasted spices can easily be powdered.
  • Save it for the end (This is Garam Masala)
  • Add some oil and fry the potatoes till Golden in colour.
  • Now take the potatoes out.
  • If you have some meat fat, or pork fat , fry it oil at this stage
  • Now add some more oil and fry the garlic and the chopped onions.
  • Then when the onion are golden brown add the ginger paste and the cumin seed powder.
  • Then add the tomoatoes.
  • Put some 1 tsp turmeric powder, Red chilly powder and green chilies. Let it fry.
  • When you can see the oil from the sauce surfacing on the top you can add the marinated meat.
  • and the fried potatoes
  • Add salt according to taste and let it the meat cook in low sim till the water from the meat comes out. Cover the lid and the let meat cook in steam.
  • To know if the meat is cooked, see if the meat is seperating from the bone on its own.
  • You can reduce the sauce to make it curry like increase the flame.
  • Also at this satge add the Garam masala powder and the coriander leaves chopped.
  • Let it sim for few minutes with cover lid.

    Hi there, Chandrima - and thank you for posting another wonderful and loaded-with-flavor recipe. I love it and I know my house will smell glorious while this is cooking. It's funny - bone marrow has become all the rage lately - or so it seems to me. As kids we used to eat bone marrow often and we loved it, although I think our dogs were upset because we were eating all the "goody" out of their bones. Poor guys...heh.

    High 5 for your recipe and I'll let you know when I make it. I have pretty much everything except the mutton/lamb and I plan to share this with some friends. I love to entertain and cook for folks.

    I hope you're having a great day. :) Vickie
