Chane ki Dal ka Gosht

I have been a big fan of Seema Hussain's Recipes (FB Page Link: and had been planning to make this recipe for quite some time; had this at a Pakistani Resto here in Kuwait named Safeena long back and enjoyed it immensely!

And now was the time to give it a try...a 6 days long weekend started and had to start it on a grand Goaty Note!

And it came out so well I was pleasantly surprised myself plus the icing on the cake was that Bandita loved it and actually overate which is normally my forte! the hard-work paid off and it definitely is one of the best feelings when people for whom you cook love your dishes!

It is a very easy Recipe and took me some 1.5 hours end-to-end to make this! do give this a shot folks...


Chana Dal  1 cup (soaked in water for 2 hours)
Boneless Mutton - Small Pieces - 600 grams
Refined Oil - 3 tbsp
Garlic - 6 pods
Onions - 2 medium sized
Ginger - 50 grams
Green Chillies - 3
Chilli Powder - 1 tbsp
Turmeric Powder - 1 tbsp
Coriander Powder - 2 tbsp
Garam Masala Powder 1 tbsp
Salt - as per taste
Bay Leaves - 4 pieces
Fresh Coriander - 1/4 bunch (chopped)
Mint Leaves - 2 tbsp (chopped)

For the Tadka:

Desi Ghee 2 tbsp
Onion - 1/3 (finely chopped)
Zeera - 1 tsp
Pinch of Heeng (Asafoetida)


1. Wash the Mutton pieces properly

2. Make a paste of Onions, Ginger, Garlic and Green Chillies in a blender

3. Heat the oil in a Pressure Cooker and then add the bay leaves & the mutton pieces; fry for few minutes till the water is dried

4. Add the paste, coriander powder, chilli powder, turmeric powder and cook on medium low heat and give atleast 6-8 whistles (don't start whistling yourself and let the cooker do that for you)

5. When the meat is half done, add soaked chana dal, some more water, salt and give 5 whistles again till the dal is done.

6. Now add the garam masala, chopped coriander & mint leaves and then mix well & keep aside.

7. In a tadka pan heat desi ghee,  add zeera, chopped onion and heeng; when golden brown in color, pour over cooked meat and cover for few seconds.

8. Eat this with Hot-Tawa Rotis and Plain Boiled Rice!

Till the time we meet again…

Hasta la Victoria Siempre…
