Haandi Gosht (Lamb/Goat Stew)


Haandi Gosht (Lamb/Goat Stew) is meat stew cooked in Haandi. Haandi is a deep and narrow-mouthed cooking utensil used in Indian subcontinent.Meat is cooked with blend of spices and lamb/goat from Punjab region. Meat is cut into pieces and cooked with spices. Handi gosht  is a one pot meal, If you like spicy gravies with chapatis or parathas, then you have come to the right spot. This spicy mouth watering mutton dish will make a perfect companion to different dishes like chapatis, parathas, briyani or even dosa. Traditionally cooked in a deep utensil, I like to cook my stew in pressure cooker. its super easy , very convenient also cuts the cooking time to half. The trick to getting this right is in the pressure cooking process where the mutton becomes really tender and juicy.
