Aloo Gosht

I had this well known dish when in Northern India many years ago, it is one of my favorite dishes, I cook it often. The use of GHEE or butter will give the potato an authentic flavor. If you have a pressure cooker it will reduce the overall cooking time. Lamb is the traditional meat to use but you could substitute beef .
