  • The recipe calls for lean meat and Fat in a ratio of 80:20. However, you may decrease the amount of meat fat based on your preference.
  • Though this curry is prepared with whole spices, I use a few powders which are Turmeric powder and Kashmiri Red Chilli Powder. Both are optional.
  • I prefer my Gota Moshlar Mangsho semi-thick but not runny. If you want it to make runny add boiling water while cooking to adjust the gravy.
