Bhuna gosht is a type of lamb curry recipe popular all across India and Pakistan. Whole spices are sautéed in hot oil and then the lamb or mutton pieces are added before being slow-cooked to perfection. This lamb curry is packed full of spices and is loaded with flavour.
The blend of spices adds to the richness of this lamb bhuna and as this mutton curry cooks the mutton or lamb releases its juices to give a delicious mutton masala gravy. Bhuna curry is a restaurant classic curry and now with this recipe, it can be made at home! Serve it along with soft, homemade naan or chapatti for a delicious homemade meal that tastes truly authentic.
Bhuna gosht is a delicious lamb curry and I love making it almost as much as I love eating it. Whenever I make this curry my kitchen is filled with so much aroma and smells amazing! This curry recipe may seem complicated at first and it does take a bit of time to cook, but the wait is definitely worth it!
The yoghurt makes this curry much creamier and tones down the spice level a little. If you choose to you can omit the yoghurt if you like. It still tastes delicious!
I also use Kashmiri chilli powder. Kashmiri chilli powder is a relatively mild chilli powder that is used for its vibrant colour. Its flavour is quite unique but if you don’t have it, you can substitute it with ½ tsp paprika and ½ tsp cayenne pepper or you could add a bit more chilli powder.
With any substitution, there is likely to be a change of flavour, but I can assure you that this lamb bhuna recipe will still taste delicious!
You can adjust the amount of water to your own personal preference. Some people prefer their curries to be waterier and some people prefer more masala. It will also depend on how much water the lamb releases as well.
As a general rule of thumb, 500ml water is good to start with and then you can add more if you would like to. This recipe is also perfect if you want to replace the lamb with mutton. It is entirely up to you!
