Palak Gosht – Palak mutton

There was a bunch of palak lying in my fridge. I thought of making stir fry with it and finally, I ended up making palak mutton as my husband suggested to go for it. Msged my friend for its recipe, because I love her palak gosht. I am so thankful to her as she is the one from whom I learnt and tasted different mutton recipes. Usually, in our place, generally at Tamilnadu in any mutton recipe specifically curry or gravy, Mutton will be the main ingredient and no other veggies will play a part in it. When I mean veggies I did not refer to potatoes, onions and tomatoes. Dalcha and mutton curry using raw banana are an exception. I have observed in my friends cooking where Mutton is cooked with Okra, taro root, palak, fenugreek, bitter gourd, pumpkin, ridge gourd and soon. This is a refreshingly new for me. So it opened a whole lot of ideas in cooking meat. This palak gosht is a famous dish available on the menu of many restaurants. In future will try the other combinations too which she cooks at home.

Let’s see how to cook it.
