Variations in making the aloo gosht recipe.
- The first variation that is presented in this recipe is made with meat, potatoes, tomato, and coconut paste along with other spices. The potatoes are cooked along with the mutton curry itself until they are done. We use the coconut paste in this recipe, you can ground the freshly grated coconut and use it or get the store bought one. The coconut gets it a very unique flavor to the Aloo Gosht recipe or the Aloo Gosht ka salan.
- The second variation that you can make is with the yogurt in place of coconut paste. It will have a more tangy flavor like a korma. You can also add both yogurt and coconut paste in equal quantity.
