This tempting and spicy desi dish is everyone's favourite:-). I particularly enjoy it with Paratha. Do try it!


  • 1/2 kg mutton or beef mince
  • 3 medium sized potatoes
  • salt according to taste
  • red chilli powder according to taste
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 2 tsp coriander powder
  • 2 tsp garlic paste
  • 2 tsp ginger paste
  • 2 large tomatoes
  • 1 medium sized onion 
  • 2-3 chopped green chillies 
  • some chopped coriander leaves
  • ghee or oil for cooking
  1. Grind the onion to make a fine paste.
  2. Heat oil in a cooking utensil. Cook till light brown.
  3. Add 1 tsp ginger and 1 tsp garlic paste. Stir. The contents and cook for 1-2 mins.
  4. Add the mince. Turn the flame high otherwise a lot of water will be released from the mince and it will turn hard.
  5. Cook the mince till it turns brown. Turn the flame to medium now and keep cooking till the color becomes darker.
  6. Grind the tomatoes and add the paste to the mince. Add all the spices along with the remaining ginger garlic paste.
  7. Cut the potatoes into small cubes. Add them right after the tomato paste.
  8. Cook till the tomato paste thickens and separates from the oil. Now add only a little water and close the lid.
  9. Cook till the all the tomato paste and water has been absorbed and the potatoes have been cooked.
  10. Add the chopped green chillies and corriander leaves. Turn the stove off and close the lid to let the flavour fuse.
Enjoy with raita and fresh salad :-)
