Generally saag gosht would translate itself to any leafy green with mutton curry. But it is more particularly used with spinach and mutton.
If you are wondering what is the difference between my previously shared Palak Gosht and this saag gosht recipe. I would say there is not much of a difference. But the only thing that differs, is in Palak Gosht we chop the leaves and add. Whereas in the Saag Gosht Recipe, we will authentically puree the spinach.
When we puree the spinach, it is rich and creamy. A perfect dish to serve at any party table along with roti or paratha.
But why think about the party table, don’t we all love this delightful dish for our everyday meal. Enjoying this flavorful Saag Gosht Recipe during the cold winter time will be an altogether different feeling.
We will not cook the palak too much. The blanching and grinding will be more than enough to cook through to it. We will add the spinach puree after we make the mutton curry. The last few minutes of cooking the mutton would suffice to add the palak.
Do not leave the spinach leaves in hot water for too long. The palak would lose it’s nutrients.
The mutton and veggie combination is surely a delight to non veg lovers. You will find lot of such combinations on my blog. Whether it is the Keema Palak, Beans Gosht, or the Methi Gosht recipe, there will be no dearth of them.
