Aloo Gosh Ka Korma is a delicious mutton curry with big chunks of fried potato served with bagara khaana (fried rice). Rich in flavor and comes a close second to biryani, when it comes to making something special on fridays. We make this even in daawats (parties) at times, and its always a hit among all young and old.

Cooking tips - - Make sure the yogurt is whipped well. - Before frying the potatoes add a little bit of salt and red chilli powder to it and mix well. so the big potato pieces wont be bland. - make sure to always mix the coconut powder in water before adding so it will dissolve easily in the gravy.
