Kosha Mangsho( Spicy Mutton Curry )

Kosha Mangsho( Spicy Mutton Curry )

Spicy Mutton Curry (Kosha Mangsho) is a very famous Bengali dish. It’s a Sunday special dish and I used to make it once in a month.  My mom is the best cook I have ever known. … I humbly admit I have never tasted better mutton curry than what she cooks. The magic of Sunday, the laziness, the peaceful air blowing in the garden, the aroma from the kitchen make me nostalgic and reminds my childhood.You can enjoy this dish with boiled rice or Whole wheat Indian bread(roti).

Drop ginger, garlic and onion paste in the wok/pan and season with salt. Give it a mix and allow the onion to turn light golden in color.
  • Now add tomato, turmeric powder, cumin powder, chili powder,sugar and give it a mix. Allow it to cook for a couple of minutes. Finally add mutton and potato ,sprinkle salt and yogurt, give it a stir for 10-15 minutes.

  • Once the mutton is cooked, add garam masala powder. Give it a mix and allow it to cook for a few more minutes.
