Hyderabad is known for its rich history, culture, monuments, and of course cuisine. The royal Hyderabadi cuisine is rich, extensive and has a celebrated history of its own. Although the cuisine finds its roots in the kitchens of the Nizams (ruler) of Hyderabad, it has a strong influence by Turkish, Arabic and Mughlai cooking styles. This is why you will find Hyderabadi cuisine having a huge fanbase from across India (and abroad). From the very popular haleem and Hyderabadi biryani to shahi tukda and khubani ka meetha – there’s an array of scrumptious recipes available in the Hyderabadi cuisine. Another such popular dish is gosht ka salan.
For the unversed, Gosht Ka Salan is a variation of mutton curry where succulent mutton pieces are tossed in a rich onion-tomato and yogurt-based gravy that gives a fiery, creamy and aromatic burst of flavours to the taste buds. Traditionally, the meat is slow cooked on low flame to get the best flavours out of the dish. However, you can also pressure cook if you are pressed for time and want it quick. The choice is yours! So, without any further, let’s get started with the recipe. Read below.
Here’s How You Can Make Gosht Ka Salan | Hyderabadi Gosht Ka Salan Recipe:
To begin with the recipe, heat oil in a large vessel and add sliced onions along with salt and fry until onions turn golden brown. Once done, keep aside and let it cool down.
