Ingredients required in making aloo gosht korma are,
Aloo | Potato – One of the versatile and easily available vegetable. Starchy potatoes bring flavour to any dish, they go in. In this recipe of aloo gosht, potatoes are cut into cubes. Potatoes cook fast, so we add them at the end of the recipe.
Gosht | Mutton: I generally prefer using goat meat curry cut pieces. For recipes like aloo gosht, gavar ki phalli ghost, drumstick mutton, etc; use meat on bone. The bones of goat or lamb leave a delicate flavour and taste in the curry.
Cashew-Onion Paste: A thick paste of fried onion and cashew nuts give base to the curry. You can keep the gravy thick or thin depending on the serving. Generally, if you are serving aloo gosht ka korma with rice, then the gravy is thick. If you are serving with roti or any Indian flat bread, then the korma is thin.
Adding cashew nuts is purely optional. You can use almonds or combination of almonds and walnuts.
Ginger-Garlic Paste: The heart of any Indian meat based recipe. This helps in flavouring the curry and also brings in tantalizing aroma.
Garam Masala: If ginger-garlic paste is heart of any Indian meat-based recipe, then garam masala is soul. Garam masala adds flavour, taste, heat and aroma.
Other Spices: Roasted coriander powder and roasted cumin powder bring in aroma and flavour in the recipe.
Green Chillies: These add spice and heat. You can increase or decrease spice level of the recipe by adding green chillies.
Coriander Leaves & Mint Leaves: Adding mint leaves is purely optional. These leaves add flavour and freshness.
