This dish is truly a labor love reserved for special occasions like wedding, Eid or other special days as it takes a pretty lot of time to make this kunna gosht recipe. If you intend to hurry through the process and use the pressure cooker to shorten the time, you will surely be compromising on the taste.
The spices and flavors used in the Indian and Pakistani dishes are pretty much same, only the technique will be slightly different. If you are new to the Indo-Pak cuisine, you will even be forgiven if you think both are same cuisine. Staying in Dubai, we get to taste the best of both the countries. And with plenty of neighbors from the neighboring country, there will never be any dearth of learning the Pakistani cuisine.
I was definitely intrigued by the name of this dish, the Kunna Gosht recipe. This traditional pakistani mutton recipe is typically made in an earthenware pot knows as kunna and cooked in an underground oven and hence it’s name, the kunna gosht recipe. At least that was what I was told by my Pakistani neighbor. Let me know in comments, if you happen to know more about it. But this about where my knowledge ends. I have just followed what the recipe required to the “T”, it tasted awesome. I would even make the same type of ingredients in it, but would have named it differently. That is the beauty of the Indo – Pak recipes. You would almost feel that you have been using them interchangeably all along.
