Mutton Rogan Gosht

Wow...the weather here is so good .In Dubai its really hot during most of the months, but come november,its the most beautiful part of the year,,, and you wont believe how cold it is in december and january...just a couple of days back it was around 10 degrees C.

But you know what..when its hot we wish that its cold but when its cold I am wishing that it should be a little warm.. because I have to bundle my kids in 2-3 layers of clothing before going out.. and that also is not enough....but its great.. coz in this cold.. drinking HOT tea is outta the world.
When the winter started.. we went for barbeque in khorfaqan...we drove from dubai to north of UAE... enjoying the beautiful scenic view of the mountains....that was a great day,.

Today is a Pot luck party at a friend's house in karama ...I was not able to decide what am gonna make..then thought of muttan rogan gosht.

I took a shortcut, actually for it..a list of spices had to be ground... but my grinder gave had to be repaired.. so i had to pick on some readymade spices, of shan.

So if u are going to make from scratch,unlike me
1-whole dried red chilli
2 cardamom
2 flakes garlic
1 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp shah zeera
1 tsp kasoori methi
1/2 tsp zeera
grind all the ingredients,

I used
2 tsp shan karahi gosht
1 tsp shan kheema masala
I was fearing it might not b good but it turned out to be good:)

so here are the ingredients
3 large tomatoes...finely chopped
2 medium onions finely chopped
2 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 tbsp tomato paste
1/2 kg mutton
2 tsp shan karahi masala '
1 tsp shan kheema curry masala
oil about 4 tbsp
1/2 cup yogurt...beaten with a fork
salt very little


Heat oil in a pot put the chopped onions and fry till the onions turn transparent,then add ginger garlic paste and fry till slight golden.. the put the chopped tomatoes and the tomato paste
stir once and cover the pot for about3-4 mins...on low flame...then remove the lid and see that the tomatoes are and onions are soft.. then increase the flame a little and fry the tomatoes and onion mixture..till it becomes a paste...then add the meat... and the shan masalas..or the grounded masala...and fry.. then add the beaten yogurt and fry for about 5 mins.. then put water 2-3 cups...lower the flame... and allow to cook till the meat is tender and the gravy is thick enough.

garnish with cilantro.
serve hot with parathas...naan would b ideal.
NOTE: I made this rogan gosht with another recipe from book, and that turned out better than this,so give that a try
