Title: Gosht Madras (Madras Curry)
Yield: 6 Servings
Categories: Lamb, Indian


1 lb Lamb; cubed in 1" cubes
-(if you're going to be
-*really* authentic,
-use kid goat instead)
Lemon juice
2 ts Salt
1 lg Onion; chopped fine
2 Garlic clove; chopped fine
2 Chiles, dried; chopped fine
2 tb Coriander; ground
1 ts Cumin, ground
1 tb Turmeric
1 ts Ginger, powdered
2 ts Pepper, black
4 oz Tomato paste
1 1/4 c Beef stock
1/4 c Ghi
2 tb Garam masala

Sprinkle the lemon juice and salt over the meat. Mix the onion, garlic and
chili together well. Heat the ghi in a heavy saucepan over medium heat and
fry the onion mixture for 2 minutes. Add the coriander, cumin, turmeric,
ginger and pepper, stir well and cook another 2-3 minutes. Add the lamb and
lemon juice; stir well to coat the meat with the spices. Cook 5-10 minutes.
Stir in the tomato paste and beef stock, bring to a boil then cover and
simmer gently 30-40 minutes until the meat begins to get tender. Sprinkle
in the garam masala and cook for a further 10 minutes. The gravy should by
this stage be very thick; if it is not, remove the lid from the pan and
increase the heat to boil off excess moisture until the gravy thickens.
