Meat Luga Lipta #sikandalouscuisine
Luga Lipta is a Hindi term to describe a preparation where the gravy isn't flowing and just about wraps itself around the main ingredient - be it potatoes or in this case mutton.I like such recipes as you get a full hit of all flavors with each bite. This is more or less a standard recipe at home , we adjust gravy depending upon what else is cooked that day , so you can make this wet or luga lipta like I am sharing today.
500 Grams Mutton Marinated in :
1 Teaspoon Chili Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Haldi Powder.
1 Teaspoon Ginger paste 1
Garlic Paste 1 Tablespoon
Other Ingredients :
Onions - Chop , saute till darkish brown then
grind to a paste.
Tomato - Pureed
spoon Garlic Paste.
spoon Ginger Paste.
Teaspoon Mustard Seeds - Optional.
Make Dry Masala
1 Teaspoon Jeera
1 Teaspoon Dhania Seeds.
1 Teaspoon Black Peppercorns.
1 Teaspoon Sauf.
Bhuno the dry masala till aromatic , cool and grind to a powder.
Dried Red Chilies
- Break into bits , as per taste.
45-60 Ml Lemon Juice
splutter mustard seeds if using , then
add tomato puree along with ginger and garlic paste .When oil separates add half the onions and dried red chilis , tip in the marinating
, and give it a gentle and long bhono - cook covered - about
At this stage the meat is 75% done , now add balance onion paste
the dry masala .Add 200 Ml water , and cook another 10-15 minutes.You should be left with tender meat and just enough gravy masala to coat it nice and thickly.
