How To Make Shaljam Gosht: Recipe To Make Turnip Mutton

Take a pressure cooker, and add ghee to it. Once it heats up, add the chopped onions along with the solid spices – dalchini and tez patta. Saute and cook the onions till they become translucent and golden brown in colour. Now add mutton, salt and dhaniya leaves to the cooker. Mix them well for 30 seconds so that the mutton absorbs the onion oil. To this, add red chilli powder, haldi, and dhaniya powder. Mix it well.

While on moderate heat, add whisked curd and ginger garlic to the mutton. Then add water and mix everything thoroughly. Cover the pressure cooker with a lid and wait for at least 7-8 whistles so that the mutton is soft and tender. Take a large pan, and to it add ghee. Once it heats up, add jeera and stir it. Wait for it to sputter. Add chopped ginger, green chillies (cut in half), chopped turnip and saute. On top of this, add butter and salt as per taste levels. Cook this on moderate heat.

Now add butter, black cardamom and coriander leaves to the pan and mix. After the mutton is cooked add it to the same pan and mix it well. After the turnip turns tender, mash it in the gravy and cook it till the mutton flesh is soft. Take the Shaljam Gosht out in a pot and garnish it with coriander and butter. And voila! Your Shaljam Gosht is ready to serve!
