Updated on June 29, 2015
Tasty Kadai Gosht
Tasty Kadai Gosht

Gosht is mutton in hindi or urdu. Mutton is usually made from lamb or goat. Mutton is a very popular dish in India among meat eaters. Usually in west the mutton is used for the meat of lamb who is less than one year old and after that it is simply called meat. In India we call all meat of goat or lamb as mutton. This recipe needs boneless meat and it should come from the thigh of the goat or lamb. Also make sure that the meat doesn’t have much fat on it. Also the fat should be white because with age the fat on the meat start getting yellowish. The only difference between meat less than one year old and more than one year old is that it needs more time to cook the older meat to make it tender. Care should be taken not to overcook the meat.

Kadai is a special pan and a whole lots of recipes get their name from it because they are made in it. The dishes with kadai name on it don’t have much curry. They are usually dry or have very little curry like this recipe.
