  • 500 grams cubed beef I used boneless stewing beef
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 medium tomatoes roughly chopped
  • 1 medium onion roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon red kashmiri chilli powder kashmiri lal mirch powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 tablespoon ginger garlic paste
  • Salt to taste
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 green chilli
  • 1/4 cup chopped coriander


  • Place all ingredients (except green chilli and coriander) into a pressure cooker.
  • Place the lid onto the pressure cooker, and cook until the whistle starts blowing for about 3-4 minutes. Timing may vary a little bit, depending on the quality of your beef.
  • Remove the lid, and place the pressure cooker onto the stove and cook the beef (also add the green chilli at this point) on medium high heat until most of the water evaporates and a masala forms.
  • The trick to making bhunna gosht is making sure that you cook enough so that the oil separates from the curry. This happens when the oil is visible on top of the bhunna gosht.
  • Top with chopped coriander.
  • Serve immediately.
