lamb or beef
Take onions and tomatoes, cut each in four pieces. Then add it in the pot along with all other ingredient s except potatoes and garnish.
Then, let it pressure cook on medium heat until meat is tender. You can do this in pressure cooker or instant pot. Cooking time will vary betweem 15-25 minutes.
Cook on high heat for 7-10 minutes with continuous stirring. A lot of searing on high heat has to be done until oil separates on both sides of pan to get that distinct roasted taste.
With bare minimum stirring you can see the ingredients melted in to smooth gravy. Finally, I add potatoes and some water.
Cover the lid and continue to cook until potatoes are tender. When potatoes are tender, my aloo gosht is ready.
Garnish with cilantro and thick green chillies which lend authentic aroma to the dish.
Serve with rice and roti with fresh salad on the side.
