Only time Amal n my hubby is happy to hear Dal is cooked when I add a word to it….. Dal Gosht 😉
Meat cooked with lentil is common in many cuisines.
Serve with rice and its marriage made in heaven 🙂


1/2cup – masor (orange lentil )dal

1/2 cup channa dal

3 Bay Leaf

5 Green chillies

1 bunch – Mint leaves, chopped

2 onions, sliced

1/2 kg – Mutton

1 tsp – Red Chilli powder 1/2 tsp – Turmeric powder

10-12  Curry leaves

2 medium Tomatoes

2 tsp – Ginger Garlic paste
3 tsp – oil

2 tsp – Tamarind pulp

1 bottle gourd cut in big chunks

1 bunch – coriander leaves, chopped

Salt to taste


Boil the dal in a pressure cooker with 2 cups of water along with salt, tomatoes, cinnamon, curry leaves, green chilies and salt.
Once it is boiled, mash with tamarind pulp and keep aside.

For mutton curry:

Take another cooker, heat oil in it, add onions, bay leaves, fry them then add mutton, ginger garlic paste, turmeric powder, red chili powder, garam masala powder.

Mix well, add water and cover with a lid and let it cook till the meat is soft. When mutton is half cooked add bottle gourd and cook till mutton is done.

Once it is cooked release the pressure, do not remove from heat.

Add mashed dal to curry and mix well.

If required, add 1/2 cup of water, let it boil nicely.
