Today’s recipe is ‘Aloo Gosht’.  It is a dish, which can also be called as potato and lamb curry. I love mutton cooked with potatoes more than any other vegetable combination with mutton. This dish full of rich flavours of spices, yet very simple to prepare. I always prepare my dishes in a pressure cooker, as it reduces the time of cooking. You can enjoy this dish with rice/chapati/lachcha paratha.
