I had been making Kali Mirch Gosht recipe every year on Eid. But, it was always dry, chewy and not as delicious as I would want it. Then, once I had delicious Kali Mirch Gosht at my aunt's place. We both had same recipe but the difference was the cut of meat we used.
I always used boneless meat from lamb leg. While, she used shoulder chops. The fact is boneless meat is tough with thick grains. While, meat close to bone is high in fat and has soft tissues.
Here a photo of raw shoulder chop, so you know which cut I’m referring.
This time, I tried kali mirch gosht with shoulder chop and trust me, it was melting in the mouth, so yummy, my hubby who is crazy about Kali Mirch boti just loved it.
Tip for making Kali Mirch Gosht
- Use Meat on bones
I suggest, shoulder chop works best for pepper lamb but if you use any other cut make sure it is meat on bone and is high in fat.
- Slow cooking
Slow cooking is the trick that works wonder. Cooking time would vary but mine was done in 40 minutes.
- Just Pepper is good enough
DO NOT tempt to add onion, all spice or red or green chilli along it. Just trust me and follow the recipe you can add as much pepper you like to increase the heat in dish but other spices with muddle with pepper.
- This will not have gravy, this is to be enjoyed greedily as a side dish for meat lovers.
