Saag Gosht

Saag Gosht

Saag Gosht is mouth-watering curry of lamb/mutton cooked with coarsely pureed spinach and spices. Saag gosht taste best when served with hot steaming phulkas or parathas or nan and steaming hot Jeera rice or pulao.   If truth be told, this dish is a need of my house as my son only likes chicken and mutton in one form or other. I have tried to feed him all types of vegetables in every possible way but in vain. This one always works for me as the Iron, Folates, Vitamins, Calcium and Potassium of the Spinach goes along well with mutton, and he is am I :-)
