We all are familiar with Aloo Gosht as it happens to be a staple curry in most of the non-vegetarian homes. Aloo Gosht is a simple curry with no complicated masala pastes or spices, and yet sometimes even such easy curries are challenging to the newbies in the kitchen. Here we can adjust the consistency of the curry by deciding the amount of onion and tomatoes to be used. For a nice thick gravy, you can add a little more of onion and tomatoes as mentioned in the recipe. However, you try to prepare it, it all boils down to one thing and that is the 'quality' of ingredients used. I always try to select the best quality of mutton and I also do not compromise in the freshness of vegetables and herbs. Here mint leaves and green chilies play a very important role in adding the aroma to the overall dish. And there are certain minute details to follow such as 'frying onion' which actually decides the texture and consistency of the curry. By not frying the onions enough till we get the desired color, or if it is left raw, the curry tends to be more watery and tasteless. Frying onions too much will give the curry a bitter taste and a dry consistency. My tip for all those who want to cook a perfect curry is to be attentive to all the steps while cooking. Apart from hands, we also need to cook with our eyes, nose, and taste buds.
