Rajasthani Laal Maas / Red Meat Curry

Laal Maas the red meat curry is a fiery dish from Rajasthan and loved by the royals. The meat that was caught during hunts was cooked in red chilly and whole spices was simmered in big handis for hours until it is melt in a mouth. Tomatoes and other vegetables are not available in that region so red chilly and whole spices are used to prepare this dazzling colorful dynamite called laal maas. But as too much heat and loads of ghee cannot be used in today's time for health reason so I twisted the recipe a little bit to keep it as healthy as possible but keeping the royal flavor and texture intact. Hope you will like my kind of royal Rajasthani laal maas. Enjoy the fiery royal Rajasthani laal maas in this rainy season.
