Dal Gosht is the ideal balance of both vegetarian and non-vegetarian protein in your diet and the best way to bring them together. If kids make a fuss to eat dal, then what better way to introduce it into their daily diet? Combine it with rotis, parathas, other breads or even rice like pilaf, jeera rice or simple steamed rice!



  1. Apply Ginger-Garlic paste, salt, turmeric powder, chilli powder to the mutton and marinate it for 1 hour.
  2. Heat the pressure cooker and fry the chopped onions until translucent. Also fry the mutton. Add water to the pressure cooker and cook the mutton in it till done.
  3. In a pan, add a dollop of ghee and the whole masala which is black cardamoms, Star Anise, bayleaves and small cardamoms.
  4. Add the chopped tomatoes and fry well. When done, add the mashed dal along with the mutton and cook for sometime.
  5. Add the mint leaves, the coriander leaves, Garam Masala powder, coriander powder and Jeera powder. Also add salt to taste.
  6. Lastly, in a small pan, add oil and Jeera and the whole red chillies and fry it. Once done, pour it in the dal and mutton mixture and cook till done.
  7. Take a piece of coal and heat it up till red hot. Place the small cup in the centre of your dish and place the coal in it. Add a small drop of ghee on the coal and cover the pan immediately, so that there is a smokey fragrance to the dish.
  8. Serve hot with garnish. Best served with Jeera rice or plain rice.
