Aloo Gosht recipe or mutton potato curry is a potato curry mixed in mutton. This is a recipe commonly made in Indian Hyderabadi households. This is a Non Veg curry eaten with rice or roti/pulav/khichdi. This is one of my favourite recipes. I like to mix meat with potato as this combination is very interesting and something most of us like.
I prefer making mutton curries or mutton kormas with potatoes or aloo most of the time. In this recipe we need to first tenderise the meat or gosht with spices and then to it we need to add potatoes or aloo and cook again.
Make sure that the meat is washed properly. Adding fenugreek leaves(methi) makes the recipe even more tastier.
It is a very easy dish to prepare if the instructions are followed carefully. This is a basic mutton potato curry and I will be sharing different versions of making aloo gosht as I keep updating my blog.
Also check palak gosht , bhindi gosht, Arbi/Arvi Gosht curry. This version of making aloo gosht is simpler to make and adding methi is optional and if added it lifts up the flavors of aloo gosht recipe.

Instructions For Potato Mutton Curry
- Firstly we need to cook or tenderise the mutton/meat. For that take a cooker, heat oil into it, add onions and fry till slight golden brown, add ginger garlic paste, add mutton to it fry well, add salt, pinch of red chilli powder, pinch of turmeric, add little water and pressure cook it until the meat is cooked well. Pressure cook for about 4 whistles on sim flame.
- Once the meat is cooked into it add sliced potatoes, chopped tomatoes, salt as per your taste, red chilli powder, coriander,methi leaves, add little water and pressure cook again until potaoes become soft. You can pressure cook for about 3-4 whistles on a high flame.
- Once the dish is cooked uncover the lid of the cooker and cook if there is any water remaining.
- Add garam masala powder over the top.
- Switch off the stove.
- Garnish it with coriander leaves and drops of lemon juice.

Notes: Here I have used cooker to make the dish but one can also use a cooking pot to make the curry. Just cook the meat in a cooking pot or heavy bottom pan until it gets tender and add all the ingredients with potatoes and cook. If cooked potatoes are not recommended then one can make normal mutton curry and add boiled potato cubes.
