Tarriwala Aloo Ghost

The original recipe isn't mine. I recently stumbled on this recipe in a food group but I tweaked it to suit my families tastes.

1.5 lbs Mutton
1 big potato cut into 1/4 inch circles
2 large onions to make Birista ( Golden fried Crisp onions) set aside a little for garnish
Oil for cooking
1 tsp whole cumin
1 no. Bay leaf
1-2 tsp Ginger garlic paste
3 nos. Green Cardamom
2" stick Cinnamon
4-5nos. whole cloves
1 tsp Turmeric powder
2 tsp coriander powder
1 1/2 cup tomato puree
1 1/2 cup Water Red Chilli powder (Or any spice powder of ur choice - I used homemade Bottle Masala
2 tsp Kashmiri chilli powder
1 cup hung curds
Salt as per taste
1/2 cup cilantro washed and finely chopped (optional)
Boiled egg for Garnishing.

 Method:- Wash, drain the mutton, season it with salt & set it aside. In a cooker heat sufficient oil, I used my new Instant pot to make this, but you can use any stove top cooker. Deep fry finely sliced onions to make Barista.Once the onions are fried nice and crisp spread them on a paper towel to drain the excess oil & cool. Once cool, keep them aside. Now in the leftover oil fry the potatoes till they cook to a nice Golden color, once done drain & set aside to use later. Now in the cooker add some more oil if required and fry the pieces of mutton on high flame and sear them till they are a bit brown. Then transfer the mutton to a bowl. Now in the cooker add some fresh oil, once the oil heats up add the Cumin seeds, cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger garlic paste. Fry well, now to this crush the crisp fried Onion Birista and add to the spices. Once it is incorporated with the spices add the hung curd, red Chilli powder, Tumeric , coriander powder and Kashmiri Chilli powder. Mix well, it will look kind of like a thick paste. Once the oil starts to leave from the paste add the fried mutton to it . Thereafter add the tomato puree & water to the mixture. Now season the gravy with salt as per taste. Once the mixture starts to heat close the lid of the cooker and cook till the mutton is done. Once done, dunk the fried potatoes to the gravy along with the cilantro. Once the potatoes soak in the gravy garnish with the leftover Birista and boiled egg. Serve with hot steamed rice, preferably long grain Basmati rice.
