Palak Gosht

Palak Gosht
Palak Mutton or Palak Gosht is an Indian-style curry with a combination of mutton and spinach, best served with ghee rice or naan.
I have been receiving a huge request for this recipe of Palak Gosht and it has been on my list for a long time. So here I am with this humble version of this curry with a short and brief video.

How to keep the spinach leaves green while cooking Palak Gosht?

The biggest query people have about making this curry is, whether the spinach should be used in chopped or pureed form. And the next question arises as to, in which order it needs to be added. I prefer to add the spinach puree at the end of the cooking process. I personally do not like the idea of adding chopped spinach to this curry even though it is the easy way out.
 It is much appealing when the curry has a rich green color.
To maintain the color of the spinach, it has to be blanched and while cooking in water, a bit of sugar helps in keeping its color. Shocking the leaves in chilled water also helps it to retain its nutrients as well as its color.
Overall, it is a very simple and no-fuss curry, and if you already have ginger and garlic paste ready, just add it along with chopped green chilies. This way you can skip the step of grinding ginger, garlic, and green chilies.
