Aloo Gosht {Meat and Potato Gravy}

Hi everyone !! 
Its been a long time since i've posted anything here, I'm so sorry about that (But loads and loads of pictures in this post !)
Last few months have been quite hectic. I completed my housejob in November, and immersed myself in wedding preparations.

Got married in January.
(sharing a few pictures of the events)

Went to Thailand for 12 days with the husband (Lets call him 'J') in February.

Than came to Oman, as my husband and his family lives here.

For the last few weeks i've been piling up recipes to post on the blog, just couldnt find the time.

The recipe that i'll be sharing today, is actually my mother's. She's an amazing cook and she has such an authentic desi palette !

You can never go wrong with this recipe. One of the best, believe me!

For this Recipe, You'll need:
750 grams of Mutton/Beef/Chicken (i used mutton)
1 large Onion, sliced
2 large Tomatoes
7-8 Green chilies
1/2 tsp of Cumin
1 tbsp of Ginger Garlic paste
1 tsp of Whole Black pepper
1 tsp of Cloves
1 stick of Cinnamon
2-3 Black cardamom 
2 tsp of Red chili powder
Salt to taste
1 tsp of Coriander powder
1/4 tsp of Turmeric powder
2 Potatoes, largely diced
a few sprigs of Coriander, chopped
1 tsp of Garam Masala powder

Heat oil in a pan, Fry Onion till golden brown.

Take out and blend with tomatoes, green chilies and cumin.

In the same pan, Fry ginger garlic paste till fragrant...

...than add cloves, black pepper, cinnamon and Black cardamom. Cook for half a minute...

...than add mutton.

When the mutton changes color, add the blended tomato and onion paste...

...and all the spices.

Add about a cup of water and let it cook on medium flame till the mutton is tender.

When the water evaporates...

...add potatoes. Mix for a minute...

...than add about 4-5 cups of water.
Let this cook for about 30 minutes of low flame. or till the gravy is the thickness than you want.

Just before serving, add garam masala and coriander on top 

Enjoy !
