Goat Fry ~ Hyderabadi Gosht Fry

Goat fry

There has been a long delay from my last post as we were in the process of moving to our new home, so wanted to come back with a popular and famous dish, Goat fry. This is one of my family’s and friends favorite dish especially when made by my mother. So to keep the recipe in the original form with out adding any of my healthy alternatives :) I noted down all the ingredients while my mother was preparing and took the pictures from the same dish which was enjoyed by my whole family while they were here for House Warming. Enjoy this delicious and spicy Hyderabadi Ghost fry.


  1. Baby goat – 2 lbs ( bone less pieces cut into cubes)
  2. Curd – 1 Tbsp
  3. Ginger garlic paste – 2 Tbsp
  4. Red Chilli powder – 2 tsp
  5. Salt – 2 tsp
  6. Turmeric – ½ tsp
  7. Oil – 4 Tbsp

  • Marinate meat pieces with curd, ginger garlic paste, red chilli powder, salt and turmeric.
  • Pressure cook marinated meat for 3 whistles *, and switch off the stove.
  • Take oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Pan should be big enough to hold the pressure cooked meat for frying.

  • Add onion when shajeera is spluttering and fry onions until translucent

* It takes 3 whistles to cook mutton which I bought here. But it depends. In India you don’t need to pressure cook mutton.
