Pakistani Achar Mutton or Beef

Pakistani achar gosht recipe is another scrumptious meat dish made with mutton and pickle spices (achaar masala). This is a traditional dish from the east, not just popular but very popular in Pakistan and India. The dish is usually cooked with the mutton meat; the meat is kept soaked for a couple of hours in spices and so it becomes tender and very soft for cooking.

Since it is soaked in the spice mixture for hours, it absorbs the flavors of spices, getting ready to please your tongue with the unique tastes of meat with pickle masala.

How does Achar Mutton Taste?

Achar gosht has a sour-saltish taste. It uses achari spices which make it a different meaty dish that we all love to eat. Cooking this recipe is a bit different with other recipes. First all spices are gathered and mixed and then meat is placed inside the mixture so the masala sticks all around the meat. Then spiced meat is cooked at low flame until it is soft. Achar spice is then ground and filled inside green chilies and these stuffed chilies are added to the meat and further cooked. This way you get a spicy and sour meaty dish to eat called "Achar Gosht (Pickle Meat Curry)".

Even if you live in in western countries like UK or USA, and if a desi family lives in your neighbour, for sure, you would have smelled a pleasant cooking aroma coming from the pan of achar gosht masala.

  • shumaila amjad,

This recipe is for any dry gosht curry. I’m am wondering where does the khattapan of any achaar come from. Normally it is from ground fine mustard seeds. Do you need khatta Dahi for this achaar?
