                   The dish is a fried dish and ‘tala hua gosht’ or talawa gosht term is a hindi version of mutton fry recipe.

           Tala hua gosht is most commonly dish made in Hyderabadi households.

                This dish is made by taking boneless mutton pieces and the mutton should be very fresh and cannot be made with bones attached to the mutton. Therefore tala hua gosht requires solid meat pieces cut into small cubes and no fatty white substance attached to it.

                    The recipe is made by marinating pieces with dry spices and then shallow frying until crispy in oil. Hyderabadi cuisine is very spicy and tasty and one of the best cuisines served across India.

Tala gosht is one of the simplest and quickest recipes from Hyderabadi cuisine.

In this recipe I have marinated mutton and then pressure cooked but if one is in a hurry then the recipe can be made without marinating and directly adding the spices while pressure cooking mutton and then followed by frying.
