though not the easiest dish to make it is very tasty and suits the indian palate very well. a few of my canadian friends loved the bhoona gosht that i prepared for them. excellent recipe and my daughter and wife will vouch for it too!- girish.
I made this for lunch this afternoon and bro- a non-veg. lover, loved it. Mom enjoyed it as well. I used a 1kg 500gms chicken and increased the quantity of all the ingredients proportionately. They enjoyed it with hot rotis and bread. Thanks so much for sharing!
A sumptuous lamb dish with a luscious presentation. Perfectly balanced ingredients, enhanced by a slow cooking reduction and freshened with tomatoes and herbs. I left out the fresh chili peppers in deference to DH's hot spice intolerence and substituted fresh parsley because I am not fond of fresh cilantro. Jan S, my "Lamb Guru", you have out done yourself with this 10 star dish!
Totally delicious! We have been looking for a good lamb curry and this rocked! The flavor was amazing and it gave me the basics for cooking a curry that I had been looking for. It didn't cook down as much as I was hoping, so I added some tomato paste. We like our curry thick and the paste was perfect. Thanks!
Since I tried bhoona lamb in a fancy indian restaurant, I just had to make it at home. This recipe turned just perfect - the lamb was nice and tender, and I had enough left for the rest of the week. I'll definitely make this again!
You should have heard BF praise this- for hours after dinner was over, he kept muttering "Mmmm, that was so good"! And it was! I did reduce the recipe- only used about 2/3lb lamb and 1 onion. We liked those proportions just fine and got 4 fair-sized servings from it. I did use canned tomatoes as suggested and instead of green chiles I used 3 dried thai hot peppers. That, with 1/2 tsp cayenne, made the spiciness in this just perfect- just enough to wake up those tastebuds, without burning your tongue. I didn't have any cilantro on-hand, so I had to leave that off, but the spicing in this was just fantastic. I used a little less water than called for due to my smaller amount of meat/onion, and this cooked up just great... oh I also used part tomato juice for the water. Yum! I also left off the raw tomato garnish, as I do not at all care for raw tomatoes. Really, really fabulous.
