Bengali dish Bengali pujo Mutton Recipe


A delicious spicy Bengali Mutton Curry cooked with Mutton and spices in mustard oil.

KOSHA MANGSHO – a must in all Bengali festivals or any special occasion. This Bengali Mutton Kosha is a bit at every Durga Pujo. Since only few days left to celebrate the biggest festival of Bengal, I am sharing recipes that will make Durga Pujo feast more alluring.

Kosha Mangsho – A popular traditional Bengali dish,cooked in a thick tomato-onion gravy together with Garam masala powder adding strong flavour to the curry.

There are two ways to COOK this KOSHA MANGSHO

  1. Marinate mutton pieces overnight with yoghurt and papaya zest and then slow cook in Kadai. Overnight marination gives adequate tenderness to the Mutton and the slow cooking process makes mutton curry more luscious.
  2. Other step is to pressure cook mutton for 20 minutes before cuddling them with spices in Kadai.

It’s best to use mustard oil to cook mutton curry since the pungent smell makes it more tempting.
