Mutton for lunch/ dinner !!! as soon as we hear this all non vegetarian taste buds start oozing inside our mouth and it is filled with water. To suffice this here I am presenting a mutton delicacy which is not very often made in our homes.However it is very easy to cook, very good in taste and a great source of vitamin c. This brain curry or gojha is cooked much faster than traditional mutton curry and tastes different than it.So you must try this to provide that noticeable change to your taste buds.
Mutton/Lamb brain 250 gm
Mutton/Lamb keema 250gm [optional]
Mustard oil 4 tbsp
Onions 5 medium
Garlic 1 bulb if thin pods else half bulb
Ginger 1/2 inch
Bay leaves 2
Black cardamom 2
Green cardomom 4

Wash the raw meat. You can either take 1/2 kg of brain and avoid keema completly or you can take 250 gms each.Now grind onions, ginger, garlic and all whole spices mentioned above except bay leaf into a fine paste.Also mix all powdered spices with 1/4 th cup of water and make thick paste. Spices when mixed this way before adding to your dish gives a better flavour.
