November 2018 - cartz's Hari Mirchi Bhuna Gosht

Post by cartz64 » Mon Mar 27, 2017 4:00 pm

This month's Curry Club "Curry of the Month" recipe is cartz's Hari Mirchi Bhuna Gosht, kindly selected by Bandit.

Remember, the first member to try this recipe (anew) and report back, with photos, gets to select next month's recipe......CA


Here is my version of Hari Mirchi Bhuna Gosht (green chilli bhuna)

Bhuna Gosht is usually, traditionally a mutton stew cooked slowly with minimal spices, to reach a thick consistency.

I have developed a BIR version.


Not the best pictures :unsure:

INGREDIENTS.

DRIED


Oil of your choice/quantity of your choice
2 Asian bay leaves
5cm piece of cassia bark
1 Tsp cumin seeds(I used black)
1 black cardamon(opt)
3 green cardamons split
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp dried methi
2 heaped tsp mix powder(of your choice)
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp kasmiri chilli powder
1 tsp salt
1tsp jaggery/sugar(opt)
1/2 tsp garam masala


OTHER INGREDIENTS.


4 green chilies(or to your taste)
1/2 average green pepper
2 heaped tsp G/G paste 60/40 in favour of garlic
1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves and stems
300-400ml base(of your choice) I used CA's original.
3 heaped tbsp of D/C tomato puree mixed with water to form a paste
Pre-cooked meat, of your choice and quantity
1 medium tomato chopped into about 2x2cm
1 small onion finely chopped.


METHOD

Make garlic/ginger/chili paste (with one of the green chilies)
Chop other ingredients as suggested
slice finely the remaining three chilies


Pour oil into pan, get to a med heat.
Put in cassia bark, split cardamons, bay leaf and cumin seeds, cook for about a min to release flavours into the oil.
next, onions and pepper cook until onions slightly brown.
next, garlic/ginger/chili paste cook until the paste loses rawness but do not allow to burn.
add, tomato paste and stir leave until the oil slightly seperates stirring every so often.
add, mix powder. Stir cook until spice loses the rawness, but do not overcook. Add a small amount of base if necessary.
next, add 75ml of base, cook for about 1 min or less
add, meat of choice, cook for about 3 mins( adding base if required to loosen)
next, add, salt black pepper, methi, kasmiri chili, garam massala, chopped coriander, sugar(opt) turmeric sliced chili
stir, add 150ml base cook for another 3 mins
add remaining base and cook until meat is heated sufficiently without stirring until oil seperates.
stir taking off caramelisation from the sides of pan and the bottom and stir back into curry.
It should be of a medium thick consistency.
take out large whole spices (bay leaf cassia bark etc)


PILAU RICE (plain)


Absorption method.

Wash selected amount of Basmati rice to get starch out(I guessed about a small cup for one serving)

Put into a small saucepan and fill with cold water about 2cm above the rice.
add 1heaped tsp ghee, 3 green cardamons, 1 Asian bay leaf, 2 small Mediterranean bay leaves, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp turmeric.

Bring rice etc to the boil and simmer until water evaporates then leave lid on for 10 mins then serve.



garnish as necessary and enjoy. :thumbup:

Hi Cartz..
Hats off to you for putting this one up - well done mate - the more new recipes, the better...
I too will be giving your recipe a try and will let you know what we think after we've had it.
Just wondering how you've come by this dish, is this something you get at your local restaurant?

Thanks uncle! :thumbup:
As with all cooking it's down to experimental attempts. I based my recipe on original bhuna gosht ingredients and brought BIR into the equation.

That's what I love about this cooking, being able to personalise recipes to suit your tastes.

Without coming over as pretentious, I had a small tub of this in the fridge for a couple of days and just re-heated it.

Flavours have developed even more, hotter, trouble is it's all gone! :noexpression:

Batch for the freezer next time! 8-)

Hi Cartz
I wouldn't be worrying yourself on how many members have replied to your recipe, 4 is not that bad as it's only been up a couple of days.

Thanks for sharing your recipe. 8-)

Cheers Rusty

Try not to worry about it, cartz, I'm sure many of us have posted recipes that have yet to receive very many comments. In fact, I know of one upstanding fellah, who started and ran his own BIR-style restaurant, that is still waiting for someone to reply to one of the recipes he posted several years ago! Yes, sad, I know, but true... :awwman:

Thanks for sharing cartz, and yes 4 (5 now) is a pretty good response. A lot of my recipes had zero replies for months/years.

Well, I have just cooked up your recipe along with 7 other curries for a get together tomorrow evening. I had a little sampler of each dish upon completion, and it tasted really good, but my taste buds were pretty shot after cooking/tasting them all.

I'll know better tomorrow how good/bad this is, along with a few other opinions. :thumbup:

Thanks for posting your recipe cartz, well done, nice & clear.

The last Bhuna Ghost I had must have been in the late seventies from a little TA in Millbrook near Southampton, I will give your recipe a try.
