Hyderabadi pathar ka gosht | How to cook Pathar ka gosht from scratch




Pathar ka gosht is one of the hyderabadi classic kebabs cooked on a heated granite slab .Pathar means 'stone' in Urdu and gosht refers to 'meat' ,hence the name pathar ka gosht.It is one of the delicacies of an authentic hyderabadi wedding .If you have been to Hyderabad(old city) there are selected shops that sell these rustic kebab's the authentic way - Grilled on  pathar (granite slab) .


Pathar ka phool or stone flower is used but I have omitted it as I could not get it here .This is in no way authentic recipe but very close to it .Mutton I have used was tender one ,if the mutton is not tender you can also use 1 tsp green papaya paste to tenderise mutton.If you are not in a hurry like me then marinate the mutton over night . 
Traditionally it is cooked on stone, but it can also be cooked on a grill /pan .So here is my take on the rustic pathar ka gosht.
