Easy Recipe of Beef and Potato Curry: Aloo Gosht

Updated on July 5, 2015

How Many Stars for Beef and Potato Curry

5 stars from 1 rating of Easy Recipe of Beef and potato curry

Beef and potato curry is a popular dish in and Pakistani and North Indian cuisine and is an all time favorite in my house. Its called Aloo gosht with 'aloo' meaning potato and 'gosht' meaning 'meat'(Beef or lamb). However aloo gosht can also be prepared with chicken meat which is comparatively less flavorful.

Usually beef and potato curry has a soupy consistency to go with rice ,however if it is intended to be served with Naan or flatbread it can be prepared thicker. For thicker curry use less water in the last step.
