Bhuna Gosht

Recipe by  

"What makes this curry special is the 'bhuna' part. This consists of pan-frying the meat with spices. The meat cooks in its own juices, which is what gives the deep flavour. It is a bit time consuming, but the end result is delicious."

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry the green cardamom pods, black cardamom pods, bay leaves, and cinnamon stick in the hot oil until aromatic. Stir the onions, garlic, and ginger into the mixture. Reduce heat to low and continue cooking until the onions are golden brown; season with the red chili powder, turmeric, cumin, and salt. Add the tomatoes and continue cooking until the oil separates from the gravy, about 5 minutes more.
  2. Place the lamb chops into the mixture in the skillet and increase heat to medium-low. Cook and stir until the lamb is cooked about halfway through and the sauce has created a glaze on the outside of the meat, about 20 minutes. Sprinkle the water over the mixture. Cover and cook until the lamb is tender, 15 to 20 minutes more. Remove the cover and add the green chile peppers and cilantro leaves. Increase the heat to high and cook another 3 to 5 minutes. Serve hot.

Looks like a great recipe- very close to what I remember tasting in India!

I followed this recipe to the letter and it was just merely okay. First of all, it did not taste like the bhuna I'm used to having. Second with all the onions the recipe calls for, it took incredibly long for it to turn golden brown. Around 45-50 minutes and that was after I turned the stove up. If I cooked it on low, I would have been there all night. Third, it took more than 40 minutes for the lamb to get soft even though I cut it into small pieces than chops. It was not ready in 1 hr 5 minutes. Not even close. After all that,the taste was merely okay, nothing special. It definitely was not worth the time and effort and I would not make this again. I'll try Madhur Jaffrey's bhuna next time.
