Laal Maas/Rajasthani Laal Maas

Laal Maas a fiery delicious curry from the Rajasthani cuisine .Laal meaning red the red colour comes from the special mathania chillies used ...This is a very flavourful and spicy mutton curry which goes well with simple jeera rice naan or Roti..

Basically mathania chillies and kachri powder  are used for this dish i have however used kashmiri red chillies  for this and also skipped the kachri powder .

12-15 dry  Kashmiri chillies soaked in warm water
1 garlic pod
1 inch ginger.
 1tbsp coriander seeds
1  tsp cumin seeds

1/2 kg goat mutton
3 Bay leaves
