Khasi Ko Masu – Nepali Style Goat Curry

Khasi Ko Masu (Nepali Style Goat Curry) is one of most loved meat varieties among Nepalese. We love it here at the Hungry Buddha too. Today we wanted to share the recepie with you.

In Nepal, the goat curry is normally cooked with bones, skin and fats instead of just boneless lean meat.

One last thing, the curry is cooked in Pressure Cooker. If you are not using pressure cooker, you will just have to cook the curry longer.

Ingredients (serves 3-4 people)

  • ½ kg Mutton pieces (with bones)
  • 1-2 medium size Spanish Onions (finely sliced)
  • 2-3 medium size Tomatoes
  • 1 tbs Garlic and Ginger paste
  • 3-4 Cloves
  • 3-4 Green Cardamoms
  • 1 Cinnamon stick
  • 3 Bay leaves
  • 1 tsp Fenugreek seed
  • 1 tbs Meat Masala
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala
  • 1 tsp Red Chili powder
  • 1 tsp Turmeric powder
  • 2 tbs Canola Oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh coriander leaves or shallots (to garnish)

  • add chopped goat meat & stir around occasionally for 5-6 mins
  • add ginger/garlic paste, turmeric powder and cook further for around a minute
