Achari Gosht

Achari gosht is a an aromatic and flavorful meat curry prepared with roasted seeds. The first time I tasted this was more than 2 years back when one day, my friend and neighbor in Buffalo, NY sent me this delicious curry with some freshly baked sesame naans. I have fallen in love with this curry since then and I started searching for its recipe and also came across many recipes for Achari gosht on the web, but the one that I found exactly like my friend's curry was at vahrevah.com . And I have cooked this curry many times since past 2 years...and yes, I never fail to cook the sesame naans ( that my friend had sent) every time I cook this delicious curry....Achari gosht and sesame naans are a like a perfect combination for me. I will be posting the recipe for the naans in my nest post...So, keep an eye for the next post :)

ACHARI GOSHT

Ingredients:
2 lbs mutton /mutton chops,
1 finely chopped medium onion,
2 tbsp of vegetable oil,
1/4 tsp turmeric powder,
1 tbsp of ginger-garlic paste,
1 tbsp of coriander powder,
1/2 tbsp of red chilli powder,
1/4 tsp of fenugreek seeds,
1/2 tbsp of mustard seeds,
1 tbsp of cumin seeds,
1 tbsp of nigella/ kalonji seeds,
1/4 tbsp of aniseeds / saunf,
2 tbsp of chironji nuts,
1 tbsp of sesame seeds,
1/2 cup yogurt,
1 green chilli- julienne cut,
a small piece of ginger-julienne cut,
juice of 1 lime/ lemon and
salt to taste.

Method:
Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a pressure cooker, add the chopped onion and a pinch of salt and cook till the onions turn light brown in colour. Add turmeric paste and ginger-garlic paste and saute for few minutes. Add the mutton to the pressure cooker and mix well. Add around 1/2 cup of water too the meat and now add the coriander powder and red chilli powder, mix well and close the pressure cooker and cook till the meat is tender.
In another pan, dry roast the the seeds- half of fenugreek seeds, mustard seeds, 1/2 tbsp of cumin seeds, 1/2 tbsp of kalonji, saunf, Chironji nuts and sesame seeds. after they are roasted, cool them for 5 minutes and blend in a blender to make a smooth paste, keep aside.
In a pan, heat the remaining 1 tbsp of oil, add the remaining fenugreek seeds, cumin seeds and kalonji and when they splutter, add the paste to the pan and cook till oil separates from the pan. Open the pressure cooker and if there is any stock in there, add it to the pan and bring to boil and cook till it slightly thickens. Add the mutton to the pan add salt if needed. Add the yogurt and mix well. Cover and cook again till the oil separates from the pan. Finally add the julienne cut chilli, ginger and the lemon juice. Serve hot with Plain naan or Sesame naan.

Hey faiza...
I too have similar story of achar ghosht. It was prepared to me by my friend during my stay with her and i tried recreating the recipe from the net. I use tomato though. It is one of our fave.
But one doubt...whats chironji nuts?...never heard of those....

Pavithra said...

It Looks awesome.. Cant wait for your sesame naan. Hey, thanks for dropping by.

Faiza Ali said...

Thanksmalr, it tastes incredible too :)

Thanks peanutts and fathima.

Do try it SE, you will fall in love with its taste.

Thanx geeta, Sailaja, Asha, Priya Suresh, BeenaShylesh and Priya prashanth for your appreciating words :)

Asha- thats so nice of your friend..you can try this with chicken too...but without using the pressure cooker.

Thanks priya, Gulmohar, Aparna, Katy and lebouffe :)

Hey shabs- happy to see you here after a long time..I am sure it will taste yum with tomato also, but i didn't use it, coz I already add yogurt to it and tomato will make it more tangy and I wanted to maintain the pungent taste of the spices.As for the chironji nuts, they are like small nuts, you can find them in Indian stores, they are also called charoli seeds. the nuts tastes like almonds.

Thnx pavithra for dropping by..I will be posting the sesame naans recipe today.
