Mutton Kosha Recipe

Mutton Kosha Recipe
Mutton Kosha is an iconic Bengali delicacy. The word "kosha" is similar in meaning to "bhuna" which means to slowly cook a gravy over low flame for a very long time leading to a rich, brown gravy and melt-in-the-mouth mutton pieces. It is worth pointing out that in Bengal, or India for that matter, mutton is commonly used to refer to a goat's meat. Mutton kosha (kosha mangsho) is served with Paratha or with Polao. It tastes great even with plain rice.
