1kgGoat or Lamb curry pieces
2nos Bay leaves
2tbsKashmiri red chilli powder
1tspDried ginger powder
Salt to taste
4nos Green cardamom
3nos Black cardamom
Wash the meat well, and keep it aside till extra water drains off.
Put the mustard oil in a big, deep pot and heat it on full flame till the oil reaches smoking point. Remove it from the flame for 2-3 minutes.
Mix the meat with yogurt, and put it in the pan on a full flame for frying.
Stir it time to time so that it does not stick to the pot, till the moisture from the yogurt evaporates.
Now add asafoetida, salt, cumin, cloves and continue frying on low flame till it turns brown.
Add Kashmiri red chilli powder and stir till deep red colour along with oil appears. Care should be taken so that the chilli powder does not burn. ( you can avoid this by adding little quantity of water from time to time as necessary.)
Add two glasses of water and add bay leaves, fennel powder, dry ginger powder, cinnamon pieces, crushed black cardamom and stir it again so as to mix the ingredients properly.
Cover it with a lid and allow it to cook till tender, on low flame.
Put garam masala, crushed green cardamom, and ghee and let it boil for two minutes.
Garnish it with coriander leaves and serve with steamed rice.
