Gota Mashalar Mangsho. A tear-jerking spicy mutton curry. Earthy yet delicious. A potpourri of aromatic whole spices. The warmth of ginger. The piquant zing of mustard oil. The heat of chillies. Bliss indeed !!!
Marinate the mutton with all the ingredients listed under For the Marinade. Give it a hearty mix, rub the marinade over the mutton pieces. Some 10 mins or so. This step is key, the patience is well worth it.
Take a thick bottomed deep pan. Add the marinated mutton along with the marinade to the pan, sprinkle in the salt.
Cook over a low flame for some 1.5 odd hours with occasional stirring.
Pour 1/2 a cup of warm water, add the remaining 5-6 green chilies. Continue to cook till the mutton is tender.
Adjust seasonings. Remove from the flame, give it a standing time of 15-20 minutes.
Serve hot with piping hot rice and a squeeze of gondhoraj lebu.
