Recipe of Bhuna Gosht

Bhuna Gosht is a non creamy , delicious , and flavorful dish , served with parantha or naans with fresh salads . Basically Buna gosht has a thick gravy made out of onions , tomatoes and other spices , roasted in the oil to get that perfect taste . Well the name says it all , Bhuna means roast and gosht means mutton . The more you roast the spices with onions and Mutton pieces , the better it tastes .  

The best way of cooking mutton meat , be it boneless or with bones is to cook by slow cooking method , in the thick gravy made out of onions and tomatoes and other spices roasted in oil . But if you are running late , then you can pre boil the mutton pieces in little water with some ginger garlic paste and salt . But I would suggest you to make by slow cooking method .
Here is the recipe of Bhuna Gosht .


500 gms lamb boneless meat 
2 -3 green cardamom pods 
2-3 pepper corns 
2-3 cloves 
2 black cardamom pods 
1 Cinnamon stick ( small ) 
2-3 medium sized tomatoes 
7-8 onions finely chopped 
3 tbsp ginger garlic paste 
1 tbsp coriander powder 
1 -2 tsp red chilly powder 
2-3 green chillies 
1/4 cup curd 
1 tsp cumin powder 
1 tsp garam masala powder 
coriander leaves for garnishing 
1/2 cup salli potato wafer 
pinch of turmeric powder 
salt to taste 
vegetable oil 


  1. In a deep pan , drizzle oil and add all the whole spices , fry for half a second .
  2. Add chopped onions , fry until it turns translucent .
  3. Add ginger garlic paste and fry until the raw smell dissappears .
  4. Add mutton pieces ( make sure you chop the lamb's meat into small pieces ) and fry for a minute on high flame .
  5. Now add peeled and chopped tomatoes , salt , turmeric powder , coriander powder and red chilly powder .
  6. Stir and keep on low flame flame until the oil seperates .
  7. Now add 1 cup of water and keep on slow flame until the mutton has cooked . ( here in this step , mutton will take some time to cook , so in between keep a check on it and if needed add little water time to time so that it does not stick at the bottom ) 
  8. Off the gas , add curd and stir well .
  9. Turn on the gas and add chopped green chilies , cumin powder , garam masala powder . 
  10. Mix well , let it simmer on low flame until oil separates .
  11. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with fresh salads , onion rings 
  12. and parathas or phulkas or butter naan or tandori naan .  

  • If you do not want to add chopped green chillies , skip it .
  • Increase or decrease the number of chilly powder as per your preferences .
  • If you are running late , boil the mutton pieces partially ( half cooked ) in cooker with salt and 1 tbsp ginger garlic paste , rest the procedure is same .
  • Best if cooked with slow cooking method and not in cooker , the taste will enhance and give the dish a mesmerizing flavor .
  • The cooking time may vary as it shall depend on your mutton quality , freshness , size of the mutton pieces and other conditions .

PREPARATION TIME : 50 -60 minutes .
SERVES : 3-4 Persons .
