Dal Gosht (Mutton Curry with Lentils - Hyderabadi / Telangana Style)

          Dal Gosht is a Hyderabadi delicacy of Mutton cooked with Lentils. Traditionally, Chana dal (Bengal gram lentil) is used for this preparation but a mix of all lentils too can be made use of to prepare at times. Choice is yours. 

          But today I made, using chana dal. This recipe calls for a spicy and a tangy gravy which I enjoy best with any type of rice preparation. So check out the step by step pictorial recipe to prepare it.

  • 250 gms. Mutton on bones
  • 1/2 cup chana dal (Bengal Gram), soaked for 30 minutes
  • 2-3 tbsp. oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
