Bhaaji Gosht Recipe | Mutton Veggies
Bhaji Gosht is prepared with Indian spices but here the centre of attraction is leafy vegetables that are added , not one or two but three , yes I added three leafy vegetables to the prepared mutton to give that extra oomph to the mutton.
Well it is said that one must add leafy vegetables to their daily meals, to extract all the nutrients that are present in vegetables, in fact doctors also advice to consume leafy vegetables to have a happy, healthy and long life.
In this Recipe all the vegetables blend so well that it gives out the perfect taste, dill leaves are some what sweet , spinach that is packed full of iron and vitamins and where as Indian sorrel has a bit sour taste. The best part is I do not use additional water to prepare Bhaaji Gosht, as I cook in thick bottomed pan on low flame to get the desired taste. I believe that cooking mutton in thick bottomed pan instead in pressure cooker on low flame brings out the best taste in mutton curries...Trust me..!
I also believe that mutton can taste awesome in any form be it mutton curry, be it mutton Frankie, mutton biryani , mutton masala, or be it bhaaji gosht....any doubts? if yes then try this Recipe - Bhaaji Gosht and decide it by your self...and for mutton lovers or a big time foodie , I am dead sure you gonna like it, in fact love it..!
