Bhuna Ghosht 2.0 & Butter Garlic Naan

The mutton was left in the freezer for something special. My friend Jeet had prepared a Bhuna Ghosht recently and it looked droolicious. His friend Inderpreet Nagpal had shared the recipe and I had to give it a try.

Now I have one version already on the blog but this recipe sounded very tempting so I thought why not!! Decided to go all guns ablaze and paired this with my fav butter garlic naan. Ameya again comes to my rescue and gives me the perfect recipe.


1kg mutton
Onions- 3 medium
Garlic-15 pods
Tomato- 3 medium
Ginger- 1 finger long or 1 tbsp
Green chilli- 3
Dhaniya- handful
Tej patta- 2 
Elaichi- 2
Dalchini- 1 finger size stick
Curd- 1 cup
Kashimiri Red chilli powder- 2 tbsp
Haldi- less than a tsp
Salt- as per taste
Dry roasted and powder masala
Laung- 3-4
Dalchini 1/2 “
Black pepper- 10-15 
Black cardamom- 1 
Jeera- 1 tsp
Whole dhaniya- 1 tsp

  1. Make a paste of onions and garlic.
  2. Make a paste of tomato, ginger, dhaniya leaves and green chillies.
  3. In a kadhai take oil and add tej patta, dalchini, elaichi. Add the onion paste and saute till nicely brown.
  4. Add tomatoes and cook till the oil seperated. 
  5. Add in the mutton pieces and bhuno for 3-4 mins on high gas.
  6. Then lower flame, add beaten Curd, red chilli powder, haldi, salt. Mix well. Cook till tender.
  7. Keep adding water if and when needed. The slow cook process will take 1.5-2 hrs depending on the quality of mutton.
  8. At the end add 2 tsp of the dry masala powder(carefully as per taste). Mix, cover and cook for 5 mins.

Note – if u are short on time, pressure cook the mutton with salt, chilli powder, haldi and little water for 3 whistles. Open when pressure drops. U can use this stock in the cooking process.
