1 cup - Yogurt


Few coriander leaves, chopped


1 ) Soak whole dried chili in warm water for sometime. Then grind to a smooth paste using little water.

2 ) Heat Ghee or refined oil in cooker, add bay leaves, clove, green and black cardamom and let the spices release their aroma, then add garlic and ginger paste and stir till lightly fried, then add onion and fry till onion turns golden brown in color. Now add the chili paste and fry till the oil turns red and floats. Put in the meat and fry till the meat is well coated with the chili paste and the color of meat changes.
